This morning when I logged into my PC all my pinned taskbar icons are low contrast (they look like 8-bit icons). If i open another instance of the program the icon looks fine but as soon as I pin the program the icon goes back to low contrast. Any ideas?

drgleockler--The icons in your screenshot look pretty normal to me.  But obviously you see some difference.
Have you tried a reboot?
If this just started, try a System Restore to date before you had the problem.
