Thanks, each. Tried your suggestions, but couldnt get it right. Kept coming up a dark blue which made the text hard to read. I was looking for a way to change the text colour under icons for the lady at the weekend.
However, problem solved! Under Properties, Themes, 'Windows XP (Modified)' was set. I changed to 'Windows XP', and back to normal.
