    What up:
    Got a problem:
    when windows 2k loads, everything is in color like normally, i log in and the desktop loads and then when everything loads, it all of the sudden goes to B&W. even if i log out and try to log in as another user it 's still black and white... i have to restart to get any color and even then when i log in and the desktop loads, it goes to black and white... i've looked at the display properties and everything looks good there... i loaded NAV and it scanned and found nothing (clean scan) because i was thinking it might be a virus that i might have accidentally downloaded. any ideas.... also all the startup folders are empty... could the answer lie in regedt32? i am not so sure what i am looking for.... any help would be great...thanks

    Try changing the appearance to a different color scheme such as teal.

    You could try updating the video card drivers.

    Tried doing the color scheme thing... might have to do the driver thing but for some reason i don't think that'll work because if it was the driver it wouldn't just all of the sudden turn to B&W after the desktop loads... and it does it at the same time after every re-start....

    NEXT PLEASE
