White Background on Windows Media Player 11

Specs: Windows Vista, Athlon 5000+ 2GB RA
When I boot up Windows Media Player, the main area is completely white. Sometimes resizing it or closing a window in front of it causes a "ghost" of whatever was there to stay over the white space.

I can see the tabs and the play buttons, but not my library or anything in that area. I can play music by clicking on actual files. I can see the media guide page, and the skin chooser page. These two are the only ones that seem to be unaffected by this problem.

I have an Nvidia card, and I've heard it can be a problem with those drivers. I already have "make color adjustments: with video player settings" checked in my Nvidia control panel, and I tried updating, rolling back, removing, and reinstalling the driver.

This is really frustrating, any help is appreciated. Thanks.

This is a screen capture of the problem (the "ghost" I mentioned before is shown as well).

When did this start happening? you can try a system restore before it started happening and see if that fixes the problem.

Hey, thanks for the idea. Such a simple solution, but it worked. As far as I can tell, it was probably a faulty Windows update that caused it. Thanks a bunch.
