Windows 7: Browsed sites....normal background colours vamoosed

Browsed sites....normal background colours vamoosed

This happened once before and was solved, but I have forgotten how.

Sites visited had individual background colours. After a Sys Res in safe mode every site's backgound is white, which is tiring on the eyes.

Advise please how to get the proper backgrounds again.

This time I'll file the solution.

On a fresh boot, after my desktop loads but before I launch any browsing/email/internet applications, I notice I have two or three instances of iexplore.exe running in the list of active processes. Does this seem "normal" for Windows 7, or should I be concerned that iexplore.exe is running even...

Normal background program behavior?
Hi everyone, Just a quick question, since I'm still adjusting to Win 7 Professional (even after a few months). Is it normal for some programs to launch quietly, do something, and then quickly close? I usually have Process Explorer open so I can monitor all running applications at all times, and...
