    Attached is what iTunes looks like in various windows. This happened pretty suddenly.

    Of course this makes it difficult to view, and to figure out what playlists I want to sync.

    I have already done a reinstall of the application, but to no avail.

    Any assistance would be wonderful.

    Like you can get programs that theme OS X and this could've caused the black boxes. Personally, I feel that maybe a reinstall of the entire OS is a must to fix this. :/

    I didn't do any theming of OS X, have absolutely no interest in it.

    Hi,

    you have activated the "high-contrast-mode".

    1. quit iTunes

    2. open the Terminal (Applications / Utilities)

    3. paste that command :

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes high-contrast-mode-enable -bool FALSE
    4. open iTunes.

    Enjoy.

    I had to bump this just to say thank you. OMG I've been trying to get rid of this problem for a while. I couldn't even explain how it happened in the first place.
