Unwanted color between letters of text

    Windows XP Pro SP3
    Mainly I see it in Windows Explorer GUI and Windows text. Between the
    letters "i" and "l", usually lower case, there appears an orange
    color. Happens on desktop icon text, too. I have installed and
    uninstalled MS Clear Type and tried all the adjustments in the
    program. I've tried different font sizes in Display properties. I have
    a 23.5 inch LCD monitor set to native resolution of 1920X1080 and,
    yes, the graphics card can handle that quite well. I've noticed this
    on another machine in the house that is running only SP2, so I don't
    think it's a bad update file. Everything else looks just fine. It
    doesn't see to affect other programs, at least none that I remember.
    I'm typing this in Agent, black on white, and no problem.

    The word "file" for instance would have an orange color filled in
    between the i and l. It don't hurt nothin', but it's annoying as hell!
    I've tried google, but no joy, mainly 'cause I don't know what the
    heck to call it!!

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
