Missing colors and choppy icons in only MS Office 2007 applications

HI everyone...

Has anyone come across this issue?  I have a fresh install of Office 2007 from a known genuine copy. I instlaled it on an existing computer with windows XP, SP2.  Office apps are updated.  All my drivers are current and I have no problems anywhere else.

Problem: Any office program I open up is missing colors from the tool bars and all the icons are choppy.  Amost like it's a low resoluton, low color scheme.  I tried changing the office theme and it has no effect.  I posted a screen shot so you can see.

Any advice?  I didn't find anyting on the MS website or through Google.
