    Hi. Screen background color has changed to yellow on its own from the standard clear color. Everything was normal when I logged off and shut down yesterday. Today when booted up finished the screen background was yellow.

    Tried fiddling around in the Control Panel-Display Properties but nothing seemed to be able to change the color.

    Some malware can change your background, but it could be the result of something else.

    Try performing a System Restore:
