Is it possible to change the color of a disabled link label in a windows form?  I want to make it the standard color a regular label when it's disabled versus grayed out.

I think I misunderstood, if you mean the actual Link inside the control is disabled, then the .DisabledLinkColor will work.
If you mean the linklabel itself is disabled (which I now believe is what you meant), then Erics code is unfortunately what you need.
