SOLUTION 1.

Export the registry subkey from another Windows Server 2003-based computer

  1. Click Start, point to Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Locate the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Colors
  3. Right-click the Colors registry subkey, and then click Export.
  4. In the File name box, type a name for the file.
  5. Note the location where you will save the file, and then click Save.

Import the registry subkey into the affected computer

  1. Click Start, point to Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. On the File menu, click Import.

SOLUTION 2.

The value data for color registry values are in the xxx yyy zzz format, where xxx yyy zzz represents the red-green-blue (RGB) values for a color. For example, 0 0 0 is solid black and 255 255 255 is solid white. The following table lists the default values for the HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Colors registry subkey.
