    You did NOT say what browser you are using?

    Are there settings within your eBay or Yahoo accounts to change this?
    I am NOT a eBay or Yahoo user.

    Hmmm, I don't know why you are seeing that, it should be white. Is it only with Internet Explorer, or do you have another browser you can test with.

    If it is an IE issue, check with Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility and make sure you don't have "style sheets" checked, and there is no check by "ignore color specified on web page"

    When did this begin, by the way?

    You could try a System Restore to fix it; these can be reversed if unhelpful.

    Hey

    Im using IE7, i looked on the Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility but nothing is checked there.

    I cannot remember doing anything to trigger this problem. i have ran norton scans but found nothing.

    Ok, I directed you to the wrong settings tab in Internet Options.

    You want the "Colors" tab.

    Make sure "Use Windows Colors" is checked.

    If you have what I just did in my settings properties -- it will reproduce exactly what you are seeeing.
