small red vertical line when there is a double 'll" in Windows

I have another question.

I am using an external LCD monitor. In Windows screens where there are 2 lower case Ls together or a lower case I and an L together there is a red/brownish vertical line the same size as the letters. It doesn't happen in programs ( MS Office) only Windows.

Thanks in advance

Hello gerribol.

This problem should be pretty easy to solve I suppose. This problem is the result of bad clear type contrast.

Click Start.
Click Control panel.
Click "Display".
Click "Adjust clear type" at the left pane.
Now a window should open up.
Do what it says: Select the text box that looks best to you. Avoid the boxes where you see such "colors" you described with the text. Keep doing this (4 times I think) and ultimately click Finish. Selecting a lower contrast should eliminate these colors to some extent but still depends on the quality of LCD you're using..
