Color problem Protools pro tools

Pro Tools LE 7.3 and 7.4 running on MAC OS 10.4 tiger
It worked fine for a year and now all the main bars have changed to yellow.
The meter backround is burnt orange fading into yellow and it meters in green or other various pixels, looks very desert camo. In fact all the colors of all the wave forms are all coming up in a camo color scheme. Someone else might really like this but I don't.
It's actually pretty hard to read.
Cant find a mention of this problem anywhere.
Still running tiger on a fairly new macbook pro, checked all color preferences and even changed them around just to see if it would help. Still no change all my other programs are clean. I uninstalled and re-installed and then upgraded to 7.4, still no change!
Has anyone else ever seen or heard of this??

problem fixed

I can't believe that no one here knew this.
In preferences under display you just simply click the millions of colors box and restart... seriously that was it!
I had swithed from thousands to millions a few times and it had no effect while i was already in pro tools. I had apparently switched it back and left it on thousands everytime before a restart.
I have never been so happy to see the default colors before in my life!!!

In fact it's a nifty little prank and april fools is only a few months away although I would surely kick someones ass if they pulled this one on me.
