All the color has gone out of my browser! (Background color & graphics) Help!
Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.

The plot thickens...now my McAfee Security Center is getting the same way...plain-text-ish...???
I think I finally may have solved the mystery...Windows FINALLY brought up a message saying I need to enlarge the max. size of my registry...we'll see if it works...

Apparently it was because I had used Magnifier the other day to try to make something out on a picture...thanks!
( Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Accessibility -> Display -> uncheck "Use High Contrast")
