Screenshot showing unreadable nodes in Explorer window.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Updates: Updates available to version NetBeans 8.1 Patch 1
Java: 1.8.0_91; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 25.91-b14
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_91-b14
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

Cache directory: C:\Users\jprox\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\8.1

If user switches his/her Windows coloring theme to high contrast black mode, it is impossible to read all nodes in Explorer window except the selected one - see attached screenshot.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Switch your Windows coloring theme to high contrast black mode.
2. Launch NetBeans IDE, open some Java application such as AnagramGame sample.

Expected: All data nodes in Explorer window are readable without problems.
Actual: All data nodes except the selected node in Explorer window are printed in black on black background which obviously cannot be read.
