Windows – New tab in IE appearing with black background

internet-explorer-10windows 7

I don't remember exactly what I customized/personalized in my system. The problem now is that the 'New Tab' in IE 10 is appearing with a black background as shown below:

New Tab appearing with a black background

How do I revert back/fix it to have the default white background?

NOTE: My system is running IE10 on Windows 7 32-bit. I even tried changing different Themes (Settings -> Control Panel -> Personalization), but still the problem exists.

  • Here's your fix:

    Go to Personalize from your desktop, then change the theme to Windows 7 Basic - then change back to whatever theme you were using. No more black background!

    Worked for me!
