Is there a way to change the background color of the popup list you get when right clicking on an Icon on the taskbar? - Windows 8.1

Whenever I right click an icon on the taskbar, the list of options pops up but the background on this popup is such a dark blue you can't read the options in the list.  Is there anyway to change this color so that I can actually read the options?

This is a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and no color options RE: no personalizations have been done to it.

This is a recent bug in Windows 8.1, you can fix it by removing the  KB3072318 update.

Also try changing Themes to a different (say more classic) Theme. I used a classic theme and the colours were fine. Unfortunately my Windows 8.1 operating system is gone (moved to Windows 10).

Tyler Brooks - I read this in some other posts and did have that update installed but uninstalling it didn't resolve the issue.

John Hurst -  I have tried several different themes and still get the dark blue list that's so dark you can't read the selections.

Anyone / Anything else?

Tyler Brooks - I have been around long enough I should have tried this first so I kind of feel a little silly now.  

Resolved it - the solution was to uninstall KB3072318 then restart the unit. Then reinstall KB3072318 - then restart - then uninstall it and restart.  I've been looking for a way to block (hide) it - like I have blocked the Windows 10 update - to keep it from reinstalling again but am unable to locate a way to do that in Windows 8.1 - it was so easy to do in Windows 7..

If you open up windows update via the control panel instead of the modern ui update menu you can hide the update like you used to in Windows 7.
