    Is anyone able to point me towards a cure to this problem.
    The laptop boots fine in other user accounts but recently started to load up in black and white in my main user account and now won't load in colour using this account at all. I've updated my graphics driver, ran RegCure to fix the registry an also turned off Aero & VistaThemes to no avail. Help.

    On a slightly other note, is it possible to transfer my files, favourite & desktop icons to a new user account?

    You have any third-party themes installed -- other than the ones that came with Vista?



    Have you done any patching or file substitution to enable use of non-MS themes?



    I'm asking because if you've done either of these, a recent Vista update could have "undone" them.



    I'm also presuming when you say "Black and White", you really mean grayscale, not a full-black desktop with a white mouse cursor.
