Question Backgrounds giving headache!!!

Hi all,

One of my parents comps is giving me a headache. Backgrounds, and colors won't show up at all. For example, online when using IE, the backround colors on web-pages don't show up. Also, in programs such as MS publisher, word, and Adobe products, backround colors don't appear. In publisher, the "fill shape" button does not fill the shapes with any color, but when viewed in the "print preview" mode, the colors show up.

About the comp:
It is used mainly for photo-editing, but also web-editing through Adobe GoLive.
The OS is Windows XP Proffessional Edition, and I was wondering if there is some setting with the OS, or the graphics card that is causing this problem.
The computer is running with dual-screens, using an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 256 mg graphics card, with nView Multi-Desktop manager.

I'm sure this is something easy that I've managed to miss, but any ideas?
