Outlook top bar looks different.

Now, I woke up this morning and my outlook wouldnt start. I got some error message i cant remember. I had a look on technet on how to solve this, and I did, using "outlook.exe /resetnavpane". It got my outlook to launch. But, the top bit looks different (file attached). I want to get it back to my normal look.
Attachment 1. What it looks like now after the /resetnavpane
Attachment 2. What it looked like before(and what I want back)
(Im talking about the bit where the Close, Minimise and Restore buttons are)
I havent changed the theme or anything, and I have tried uninstall/reinstall outlook
Many Thanks
Aman

Attachment 1 looks like my Outlook does, so I would regard it as normal.  Attachment 2 looks blank!

Attachment 2 was from internet explorer. The thing is that office 2007 matched my Windows theme that I made - Here is a google image that i got. At the top, it matches with the windows 7 areo theme!!
I may have to reinstall windows anyway (bsod  Undecided )

All fixed. A system restore fixed it. And no more BSOD
The attachment is what outlook used to look like - the email addresses and senders are blanked.
