Windows 10: Window Color Changes

    Window Color Changes

    Since downloading and installing the 10/2 updates, my windows have been changing colors. They're normally a blue/grey scheme, but when I hover over a link or button, the colors brighten, and it shifts to a brownish scheme. I've only noticed this on Chrome and Office applications, but I assume it has to be something to do with the update. I assume it's a setting in Themes or customization, but I can't figure out a way to turn it off. Does anyone know what's going on and how I might keep the colors from changing? It strobes every time I move my mouse, which gets annoying very quickly.

    Hi Guys
