Windows 7: Strange Console-like Welcome Screen

18 Dec 2015   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

A friend of mine just suggested something which kinda works but it kinda doesn't. Under the windows themes at the bottom there's choices for High contrast. That kinda make it happen on my computer, but at the same time every menu or word or writing comes up with the green letters. In her case it's not doing that. He's given me something to think about though. And I do remember changing her theme before and that didn't get rid of the problem.

XP recovery console versus Vista/7's recovery console
It seems to me that XP's recovery console is somewhat better than the one that comes with Vista or 7, unless someone can point me in the right direction for finding further documentation on this topic. The main difference is the lack of ability to tinker with services (LISTSVC / ENABLE / DISABLE...
