Windows 7: Color not displaying on screen or in print preview in Word or Excel

Color not displaying on screen or in print preview in Word or Excel

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I have MS Office Student/Home Edition.

After a recent MS automatic update the color display on screen and in print preview suddenly stopped working in Word & Excel. It was working fine prior to the update.

I have googled and searched and cannot find anything to help.

I tried a repair from the install disk, checked my computer display settiings & verified that I am running the most up-to-date video drivers.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and is there a solution?

Thanks,

Tina

Hello Tina 265, welcome to Seven Forums.

A couple of things you could try - restore your system to a point before the problem update:
System Restore

or perhaps the information here will help:
