What OS are you running the game on? Microsoft released an update that botched steam users. Look for kb2803821 in Add and remove programs. Once you remove it Restart.

Try changing the compatibility settings of your steam>steamapps>common>tropico 3>tropico 3.exe : check disable visual themes and disable desktop composition

I have done all of that but I do not have disable visual themes or disable desktop composition options. I am running Windows 8.

If you work with 2 screens, type windows key + P, select your main screen.
You won't have to do it next times.
