Why all Source Tree windows are transparent?

Hi. I tried to install and use Sourcetree. But in the install process, the window of Sourcetree is all transparent and cannot finish install.

I tried uninstalling Sourcetree using Control panel, deleting all the file in the "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Atlassian" and C:\Users\gt510\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree.exe_Urlxxxxx", and reinstalling older versions of Sourcetree, although nothing succeeded.

In the screen shot, the window seems black, but usually it is transparent. I wondered that the graphic driver was wrong and updated it, but it did not improve the situation.キャプチャ.PNG
