Why did my favorite bar style option vanish from Microsoft Project 2007 after upgrading to Windows 7 and re-installing?

Being picky about MS Project: I've been using MS Project 2007 for my job, and I've used a simple, square-cornered style for my timeline bars. Our IT folks recently upgraded us from XP to Windows 7, which meant I had to reinstall MS Project. Now that bar style option is no longer available. I have updated Project with SP3, the latest update I can find.
The closest I can get to my old style is a rounded bar with a drop-shadow, which doesn't print out as cleanly as the style I was using. Here's an image that shows what I mean.
Much Googling has failed me, and our IT department has no clue either. Any suggestions?
(Before you ask: choosing different "start" and "end" styles to add to the middle style does not replicate the desired style; it was definitely a single "middle" style choice. Also, the desired style choice does not appear in either the global formatting or in formatting an individual bar.)
