That is a very strange problem indeed.  I've never seen that, but I am using VS2005 in Windows 7 and I did have some other strange problems.  Most of them were resolved when I installed the service pack 1 for VS2005.

Interesting.  It seems to me that the way the color preferences work has changed between vs2005 and vs2008 (I changed my font colors, and can't seem to get back the defaults in 2005) LOL
