Thank you for your suggestion! But something else must be going on, because I have tried to retore my computer... several times now. I have tried different check points from a week ago, 2 weeks ago, a month ago, 2 months ago.. and it will not retore. It says Restoration Incomplete please choose another check point.. WELL I have chosen lots of them now. I checked microsoft.com to troubleshoot windows restore and it said this could occur if windows was shut down improperly.... but Windows Restore automatically shuts the computer down and restarts it, itself. Weird. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Thank you. I have tried all the steps provided and still can't see certain pictures on certain sites. I have tried the Windows Restore option with no results either. I just received my Windows Vista Upgrade. I wonder if installing it will fix my problem. Do you think????

installing vista will give you a brand new operating system so any changes you did to the old operating system will be gone..unless you played with settings on the monitor itself...all should be good...
