xp desktop starts in 8-bit colour

  bob-watkins 17:09 05 Sep 2004

i've 3 user accounts, the problem only occurs on one of them. as soon as the desktop icons load, the screen switches to 8-bit colour. by using msconfig and disabling each startup program in turn, the one that's causing the problem is:
system item: WATCH
command: c:\windows\twain_...
location: common startup

anybody please help?
