For some strange reason my font on my applications and files is changing from black writing to green writing. I think it happens when i put the selected files on the desktop and then it changes but im not sure.. Any help would be great, thanks. Also is a picture attatched if unsure of what im on about!

I think your files are compressed. In Windows Explorer, right click on the drive and choose properties. Untick "compress files", and if the font becomes becomes black, problem solved.

If you look on the left side of your screen shot, you will see "Attributes: Encrypted". Read this for some information on encryption. If you want them to remain encrypted, but not colored, go to the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Go to the View tab and uncheck "Show encrypted and compress NTFS files in color". To unencrypt (not sure if that's a word), right-click the main folder/drive, then click Properties. Then, click the Advanced button and uncheck "Encrypt contents to secure data" and click OK and OK.

Edit: Didn't see that this was the whole drive, added /drive to instructions.
