I don't know how, but somehow the background on my Quick Launch toolbar (Win 98se) has turned to a very dark blue or black color. Also, when I open Windows Explorer, the left part of the window (the Folders side) is all very dark blue or black. I had tried to install drivers for a CD-RW and we had some real problems. We re-installed Windows, and ran McAffee and Ad-Aware. Didn't think any of this would have caused this problem. Thanks for any help.
