Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. Did you change the admin template in: Extensions->Template Manager->Administrator?

I'd start there to see if the template is set correctly to the Khepri template. You can also edit the CSS of the admin area there as well.

As for uploading, I cannot say whether it's related or not. What were you doing when you noticed the change? Did you change templates or upload a new extension to use?

If changing the Admin template does not resolve the issue, you may have to restore your website from a backup.

Here's a link on backups you may find helpful:
