You can reinstall the display driver and resolve the issue.
In case you dont have the required driver, find out the display adapter & browse for its drivers at driverguide.com, which is a good place to look for most of the drivers.
Hope this helps.

Let me get this straight... You are saying that this is a Windows 95/98 machine, and you can set the desktop resolution the way you want, but when you reboot, it is defaulting back to 16 colors?

Try this:
Boot as usual, and then go to the shutdown menu. Instead of shutdown or restart, select "Close all programs and log on as a different user". When you get to the logon screen, select "Cancel" to log in. Try setting the resolution and reboot as normal.

You did not say what display. Is it Number 9. I had to re-install mine also a year ago for whatever reason I could not get the display properly set. By re-installing from the site it was back to normal, Sometimes windows is ...tired. The virus you said you ad did bad stuff to some PC I knew. Find your book for your display, go to the Manufacturer on web site. Download.
