The display settings for our MS Office programs & Internet Explorer have been changed in a way that I cannot figure out. I have MS Office 2007 Home & Student, all the included programs look like something out of the 80's. The Windows logo looks 16 bit & black & white. If I want to add colour to a spreadsheet, the option is there, however it will not display the colour. I've tried changing the themes even uninstalled Office and reinstalled. Internet Explorer, will not show page colours either, thus we are unable to see buttons & links. I'm at a loss and don't know what to do.

I've tried changing the themes

Hi and Welcome -
Have you attempted to Right click on an open area of the desktop >> Properties >> Settings and looked on the lower right side of the panel
You should have "Color Quality" and you set this to (Highest) 32bit [Use the Drop down Menu] -
Also depending on screen size etc, My "Screen resolution" is set to 1280 by 1024 pixels

Try these settings and then click Apply >> You may need to reboot the computer if you alter the settings -

Let us know if these are your settings already, or if the changes work -

Thank You -
