Out of nowhere our monitor went from working fine to being washed out and hard to read, especially in black and white areas. There are grey horizontal bands throughout the windows as well. I've run spybot and hijack this and have deleted what I thought was spyware, but I have no idea if our monitor is just dying or if we have something more insidious going on. Thanks for your help....hijackthis log appears below...

Nothing obvious in your log.

Has anyone been fiddling with the monitor controls? (the simple thing that gets forgotten!)

Have you tried another monitor on your computer? If that works, then it is likely that your monitor is dying. repairs to monitors are expensive, so the cheapest option will almost certainly be a new one.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
