I'm not sure why rebooting (re-starting) caused this problem, but go to Start>settings>control panel>display>settings tab. Then on the left lower side you will see "Colors" (or colours since you're a Brit...just a joke). There will be a pull down with different values. Try 32 bit and see if that helps. Apply>Save.

I also suggest not posting your email address, but list your email in profile and ask users to email you via the "email" tab.

You can try upgrading your drivers for your video card. Then do what "randyrayd" suggested again if his suggestion don't work the first time. I have had problems with Windows ME losing my Video card drivers many of times in the past.
