I have Outlook 2000 loaded on a Windows XP Pro p.c.  When Outlook Today is shown on the screen (which is what we want to see when we first open Outlook) the items listed under the "Calendar" items are a light light gray color and very difficult to read.  Is there a way to change the colors of those listed items??  I know there is some type of bug on Outlook 2000 where you can't go into customize the settings on Outlook Today after applying critical updates - so I can't open "customize outlook today" - but is there any other way to make those listed items darker??  I have even tried adjusting my monitor brightness, etc. but that didn't work.  Thank you for any help.....

Thanks for the workaround to fix the bug; however, I think even if I get to pick a different style under customize the items still appear very faint under the Calendar.  I have a few other p.c.'s that show different styles, i.e., summer, winter, etc. but the listed Calendar items on Outlook Today still show a faint gray and are very difficult to read.  I was hoping there was a way to change the font color or something.....
