I was having problems with fonts that were to large and all over the place.
No background colors in IE 6.
I resolved all the other issues except the colors in IE by down loading IE
7. I tried Firefox not background colors there either.
MSN(the butterfly) no background colors.
I have been on line all day including the microsoft web site. This has
nothing to do with the settings as I checked the Color and Accessablity
I have run two virus scans with trendmicro. No viruses or adware.
