Thanks to Lumen-Melano here [link] i can now present to you the solution to the MS Office bug some people encountered. Here's what Lumen-Melano wrote:

Right click anywhere on the desktop and click personalise.
Make sure you have selected one of the Static themes as your current theme.
Click on "Window Color" at the buttom of the window.
Then click "Advanced appearance settings".
Then on the new window find 3D Objects in the dropdown menu under "Item:"
Then just make sure that both "Color 1" and "Color" are white.
Click OK and Save Changes and you should be done.



// Static Visual Style + Static Polished Visual Style
// explorerframe.dll (64x and 32x)
// Preview
// readme with installation instructions


stuff in the preview:

I wish there was an easy way to edit themes without downloading tools and everything.
Because my Virus Scanner tells me that this tool I have to download is a virus :(
