Very strange problem (1 Viewer)

I have a very strange problem since I started using Media Portal after I completely uninstall older MediaPortal versions and install MediaPortal 1.0, the first time I start MediaPortal everything seems to work fine, but when I close MediaPortal and start it again, I don't see menu items, the four buttons on top are so small I can't even see what they mean. I have to reboot my computer before it works again only on the first try. After that, the UI is broken. This only happens in full-screen mode. I don't have any additional plug-ins installed.

I'm running Windows Vista Home with User Account Control turned off.

    Are you using the Aero theme, this needs to be used to render EVR correctly.

    But again logs really might give a idea as to what is going on.

    I am using the Aero theme, yes, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'm going to get the logfiles when I get home in a few hours...
