a DTP program keeps giving me a message*******
"your are running in 16 colour or 256 mode for best performance run in high color 16bit"

but i am in HC 16 Bit !!!!!!!! the PC changes into 256 colour automatically

was working OK before
tried uninstalling and reinstalling but to no avail
in the compatability program its states w98 256 in the setting ??
don't know how it got there but i can't seem to remove it


Can you help with this one ????
be much appreciated

It might be easiest to use System Restore to take the pc back to before you installed Yahoo messenger.

it also wipe out all my restore points..........????

Just a guess but if you say it removed your restore points then I assume you are running Win XP?
Also, if the DTP program says it is compatible with W98 256 then I also assume that it is only compatible with Windows 98 having 256 MB Ram and therefore gather that the program isn't made to run in win XP.
Which DTP program are you trying to run?

Just noticed your other thread.
It would be better if you stayed with your original input.

I have been using print artist (sierra) and it has been working perfectly up to now.
it does not say it is incompatable it says i am running 256 colour when i am not i am actually running 16bit which is what it is actually asking for
