    I also have Microsof Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. My computer monitor is fine, until I start recording or watching with Media Center. The screen will be fine for about a minute, then it will haze up in pink and blue colors. When I reboot, system is fine. I've replaced video card and problem still exists. It only does this when I'm using Media Center. I think this started happening after upgrading to Service Pack 3 XP.

    I have a Gateway, Microsoft Vista program. My monitor changes colors, sometimes multi-colors of pink blue, grey, yellow etc. Also my screen saver (I use my pictures) does not always show the pictures in color; sometimes in black and white and sometimes multiple pictures show up on the screen.

I doubt if this is related to the software you installed. Check the video lead that runs from the PC to the monitor. Sometimes the insulation becomes damaged or the wires break. With the computer on gently wiggle the lead around at one end or the other while watching the monitor, if the colour flickers then you have found the location of the fault. Also check the plugs are in firmly.

I want to delete my web search toolbar


On the Menu bar under "VIEW" select the "Toolbars" drop down menu and deselect the toolbar.
This often brings up a dialog box asking if you want to disable the toolbar select "Yes".
You can also try to see if the toolbar is listed in the add/remove control panel and uninstall it from there.
If you are trying to remove the dreaded "MY WEB SEARCH" toolbar(its not clear from your post) do this:
First, uninstall the MyWebSearch option from Add/Remove Programs
1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.
· My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
· My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
· My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)
· Search Assistant - My Way
4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis or another adware/spyware scanner
5) With HijackThis, scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining.
6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
7) Right-click and delete the folders for:
· FunWebProducts
· MyWebSearch
8) MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

this is telling you that the myweb is not installed correctly or has been uninstalled incorrectly. More than likely someone deleted it instead of uninstalling it which left the reference to the program in your windows registry causing windows to look for a file that is not there which would give you that error message.
