After taking ages to clear computer of various trojans and kernel 32 errors computer up and running (took week) now cannot change to 256 colours so although computer working great cannot see pics well and cannot view correctly have checked all you have written before with no luck, could I have deleted some files whilst clearing system that would have made this work correctly? Am new to computers and may have gone a bit deleting happy.

hmm...ok well go to the manufacturer's website and get the newest drivers for your video card...install those and see if it fixes it..your old driver might have been corrupted
