Do I reset the browser?

Yes i am here

Have you reset internet Explorer ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes I remembered what you did last time, seems my browser is unstable?

Whilst you are on, I have had difficulties with the start up screen when logging on. The whole thing goes to a complete mess or mass of merged colours and a type of x-ray effect, making it difficult and almost impossible to work with. I opened Display at Control Panel, and clicked on the troubleshooter for Aero and transparency(?) which cleared up this on the screen, leaving me with the following messages:


COLOR DEPTH SET TOO LOW (which was ticked as cleared)

Any advice as to how I address the problem as each time I close down, and restart I have to go through the same troubleshooting process.

Do you have Firefox installed ?
Have you tested in Firefox ? if you have the Same issue.
Sounds like a service is disabled -
Have you tried a system Restore ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

If I try a restore, will I lose much data etc?

Then let it restore
