    I can see the font on every other part of windows except the page when i double click the C: drive(where program files,documents and settings etc are)I can only see the letters if i click on the icon like i did where you see the "intel" folder.Here is what it looks like.

    And this is what every other page looks like.



    It seems that the font on just that page is white so it blends in with the white background.I have searched google and tried a bunch of things but with no luck.Does anyone know how to fix this as it is bugging the hell out of me.Thanks.

    1) Have you tried the Display Properties - Appearance - Advance? This usually solves all desktop object color problems for me.

    2) You seem to be using Windowblinds or a program of that type. Perhaps thats whats causing this issue.

    If thats so, then im stumped myself. Well if everything else fails, then I'd say try uninstalling WB itself, then resetting the default Windows settings. If that doesnt do it, then I dont know what will.

    Maybe you'll get better answers if you ask this in the software section. Want me to move it there?

    Maybe this will help a little.
    You can see with a darker skin that the font on that page is white for some reason.

    But on every other page except that one the font color is black as you can see here . The easy answer of course is to just use the darker skins but it's not really what i'm looking for.There has to be a way to change the font color but i just can't seem to find it.I tried a bunch of things on desktop,properties,appearance,advanced but i can't seem to find the right one if its there.

    Based on your window above (white font)... Try this...

    Tools -> Folder Options... -> View -> "Apply to All Folders"

    open up my computer then hold the shift key and double click the c drive. This key combo hides the text and puts the icons/images in thumbnail view. It may or may not help.
