Sudden colour changes

Windows XP. Spyware and anti virus has been run and also Windows Restore

On switch on I have found that my colours have changed and I cannot change

I have a very delicate shade of purple for example on PC Advisor the top PC Advisor Expert Advice is blue
The Tool Bar, File Edit etc and Address Bar and the PC Advisor web page is all purple background save for the message screen.

Gone into Properties: Appearance: This shows it as Windows XP Style (on changing to classic is does nothing)
Colour Scheme is default Blue.
I need to change the background back to white but cannot find out how.

No technical replies - cos I have no ideas really!!

recap. Yes I have been told thanks. Its a Philips 19" Flat screen.

Graphics card is fine.

Have I fixed it? Well I have just switched it from windows xp to classic, gone to Advanced twiddled the colours applied them then as an after thought switched back to Classic view before ok. Result is that I have a more realistic colour sequence.

altered the monitor color profile,but ...

How does one do that? I have a book which I put all my "hints" in from PC Advisor. Where would I be without you all! Remember easy language please
