Turns out there is an easy fix. Right click on the Windows Desktop and choose Properties. Then choose the "Effects..." button on the "Appearance" tab. Make sure that the "Show shadows under menus" item is unchecked.

Then again if you stuck to the "classic" Start menu you never would have had this problem ;-)
