Access 2003 Blue Theme Under Vista

P: n/a
Does anybody know why my Office 2003 apps including Access have taken
on a blue theme when running under Windows Vista irrespective of which
"Window Color and Appearance" I choose in Control Panel? It doesn't
seem to matter if I'm running Aero or Vista Basic.

Access 2000 is not affected and has the bog standard grey toolbars
etc.

Under XP the blue theme only appeared in Office apps if the blue XP
theme was chosen. If another theme was chosen the Office apps took on
that theme. Under Vista it seems to be stuck on blue.

Any help is appreciated.

Try unchecking the box:
Use Windows Themed Controls on Forms
in Access 2003 under:
Tools | Options | Forms/Reports

Thanks for the reply Allen, but this is more than themed controls.
The toolbars and menubar are blue also. Under XP it depended on what
colour scheme was chosen in Control Panel, but under Vista the blue
persists irrespective of what color scheme is chosen.
