No text appears in (especially browser) dialogs
Posted on 2003-02-28
When use Internet Explorer (6.0.2800.1106) and open a dialog box, e.g. by pressing CTRL+F, I don't see any text in the dialog except for the title in the title bar. The buttons are there, just like the radio buttons, text fields and everything, but there is no text on anything.
Sometimes when I'm moving my mouse pointer over the dialog, a 'wait' mouse pointer appears but immediately disappears again.
Sometimes, also buttons inside web pages seem to shrink into tiny squares without text.
The problem is not just limited to Internet Explorer, Netscape gives the same problem. Most other applications seem to be alright (Outlook Express, Word). When I try to open items under 'control panel' e.g. 'mouse' I get the problem again.
All problems disappear if I log in as administrator.
I'm running Windows 2000, I upgraded from Windows NT some time ago. The problem appeared after I installed service pack 3 and had to perform a repair (not due to the service pack) shortly after that.
I hope you can help me fix the problem without having to reinstall Windows 2000 and all my applications.
