Default office problems

my copy of office 2003 has problems with microsoft WORD only. Here are a few screenshots to show you what i mean:
before:


after:


See how i start the program, and it doesnt show the color of the icons

and i minimize, or point over each icon, and the color appears.

Whats wrong? A virus? Malware? Spyware?

I have ran spyware and antivirus programs, and have AVG enabled...what is wrong?

it wont tell you to update, go to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/of...e/default.aspx


and update it. theres a bunch of updates you need wether it fixes your problem or not like service packs, etc.

I would follow Warez's suggestion and update office. They do have a SP2 for Office products. They seal up some security issues that affect windows from within Office. The first one that comes to mind is the security vunerability that was descovered in Dec about the Picture Viewer. That also affects Office.
