    I don't understand what has happened. When I open up Microsoft Office 7 the ribbon is black and white instead of blue. When I go into my word options it shows I have selected blue.
    I am worried, could this be a virus or what? Can anyone offer help?

    Try selecting a different color option and apply and then reapply the color scheme you want. Maybe it'll work, not sure though.

    Good Luck!!!!

    It is so frustrating, nothing I google answers my question. It is more than choosing a color in my word options. I tried that and nothing changes. I just don't understand what has happened.
    I do know I was in paint and that is where I first noticed it. Now everything I try to do, excel, word, documents, all have a transparent background on the ribbon. It makes it harder to read.

    try this:

    Right click on an empty space in your ribbon bar. Choose "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" and Click "Popular". You should see a "Color scheme" drop down box--click "blue".
