Fw: Green and Red highlights in the menus

Somehow the KDE menus started having green and red highlights. 
I don't know how to explain this without sending a screen shot of it. And any attachment makes this message too big.

If the attachments don't go through, the one thing I can describe is the main menu at the top has (!) in front of each menu and looks like this:

(!)File    (!)Sessions   (!)New   (!)Bookmarks   (!)Desktop   (!)Windows   (!)Help

Then if I hover over one of them (e.g. (!)Bookmarks) the (!)B changes to B, highlighted in green.

(!)File    (!)Sessions   (!)New   Bookmarks   (!)Desktop   (!)Windows   (!)Help

And if I click on Bookmarks, the dropdown menu has similar green highlighting on all the underlined letters.

The highlights are very distracting.

How do I make the KDE menus go back to normal?

I am running ArkLinux but I don't think that is the problem because only the KDE menus are affected. No other applications are affected.

I looked through the KDE Help file including the FAQ pages and can't find anything that talks about this.
I am a novice with KDE, so any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
