    Goto Start - Setting - Control Panel - Display

    Here you can make adjustments to the way you see things on your display.

    Goto the Settings tab

    On the colrs drop down select 32 bit (if this option is there) or 16 bit.

    However, if these are already chosen - you might need to change some of the advanced setting by pressing the advanced button

    You might want to check that you have the right adapter set up under the adapter tab and that the refresh rate is correct for your adapter. In addition you might want to check if there is a new driver for your adapter card.

    Try that - that might help you!!

    also goto to the display settings "Effects" tab, and uncheck "show icons using all possible colors" Then restart. Then check it again then restart.

    By any chance do you have an Nvidia Video Card?

    You can also delete the Shelliconcache file in the windows directory and restart.
