When I use a skin that changes explorer, notepad++ and Scite get all messed up on the toolbar / menus.
Adding them to exceptions did not fix the issue.
Adding explorer exception did not fix the issue.
Resolved by using a skin that either makes explorer similar to original colors, or does not skin it at all.
This is very disappointing, I wanted the system menu's to be skinned.
I hope I'm doing it wrong....
