wzm,

The only time I've seen this behaviour is on systems with limited video driver colour depth (ie. 8 bit / 256 colours) and where there are multiple forms each of which have pictures on which utilize different colour pallettes.

Also, given the age of the software, if may be worthwhile having a look at the 'Compatibility' tab on the shortcuts properties - try running in Win95 mode or  altering the 'Display settings' on the same tab to force running as 256 colours etc.

cheers
