This is a newly commissioned Windows 7 system with Classic Shell installed.  Some of the program groups shift color from white to amber ... sometimes after a manual change to something in that menu, but sometimes without an evident cause.  Three examples are seen in the image below inside the area I've flagged with a red border.

a) What causes this?
b) Can it be disabled?
