    I have xp pro and I cant see part of the help screens. I click on help and support. Then under pick a topic I can't see the topics unless I put my mouse on them and then I get a shadowed version of what it says. It is almost like the text was changed to white. I have no problems seeing anything else. Any ideas?

    I haven't done the above yet. I have been busy and started to fix a network problem and clicked the network wizard and the link on that was white on a gray background so I think I need to know how to change links back to the default color. This is not a problem on internet explorer.

    I tried doing this and I don't know if it worked or not. Here is my question. Is there a way to change the background color for help and support services. The background is white. I logged off of me and logged onto my wife and her links are all there because her background color is blue.

    Laura-- You're the first person I've seen on a forum identify herself (no himself either, he he) as being with Microsoft. For some reasonI think thats really cool. You're not afraid of the heat.

    My bad. Sorry, Mosaic. I saw that signature block and over reacted.
