    Ok, heres the deal, it's only when I sign on in my name. If I sign on as guest I have no problem with the colors. Strange. When I use my name the whole screen looks as if it is spotty and the colors look like a messed cartoon. Help if you can.

    Thanks

This may actually be something the monitor is doing, not windows.

ON the monitor itself, you should see some buttons. Usually there is a menu button of some kind. Anyway, press some of those buttons to see if a menu comes on the screen, and then navigate your way through some options and see if you can find a brightness or contrast setting. You then should be able to change the settings with the buttons on the monitor (left, right arrow keys, or someting similiar).

Hope this helps.

Click Window Color and Appearance. Under Window Color and Appearance, click the color you want, and then click OK. Note If you see the Appearance Settings dialog box instead of the Window Color and Appearance window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero.

I want to change my monitor colour temperature


When you use the Colors window to select colors for text or objects in a document, you can also assign a color profile to the document. Color profiles help ensure that the colors you see in the document onscreen match the colors in the document when it's printed or viewed on another computer.
To choose a color profile for a document:
  1. In your document, select the text or object whose color you want to change.
  2. Open the Colors window.
    In some applications, you can open the Colors window by choosing Format > Font > Show Colors or Format > Show Colors. In some applications, you can also click a button in the application's toolbar or a settings pane.
  3. Click the Color Sliders button.
  4. Choose a slider option from the pop-up menu.
  5. Drag the sliders or enter specific values to adjust the color.
  6. Click the colored box next to the pop-up menu and choose a profile from the list.
If you open your document and the colors appear in a different shade or hue than you expected, the application you're using might not recognize color profiles. Try using the generic color profiles instead.
In some cases, an application may not open documents that use non-generic color profiles.
You can create your own custom color profiles using ColorSync Utility. For more information, open ColorSync Utility and choose Help > ColorSync Utility Help.
