  1. Hello.
    My OS is Windows 2000 Advance Server.
    I don't know why my icons in all programs such toolbars, windows explorer (file icons) and ... Automatically switch to 256 colors.
    My display settings is in 32 bit color.

    Please help me about this problem.

    There`s a registry solution you could try HERE

    You could also go to the display properties in the control panel or wherever,

    and click the Advanced tab then Effects,and see if there is an option for maximum colors.

    Is this from a fresh install? Tried installing the driver for your video card?
