I run Windows 7 SP1 32-bit on AMD64 X2 with 4GB RAM (3.25 Usable). I use Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and Internet Explorer 9.0.1.. and I use 2 monitors.

Visual Studio will turn the font colors into red/blue as soon as I close Internet Explorer. And also in some other situations like opening Photoshop CS5. (See steps to reproduce)

Having the same issue.
The two workarounds I have found are
1) close VS and open it back up
2) re-set or re-import VS settings
sometimes going to tools > Environment > General >Visual Experience and unchecking "automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance" settings will fix the problem.

I'm using a custom style from but the problem seems to happen with any custom style I use. I never use stock so I can't say if the problem is limited to just custom styles.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit with 10GB of RAM, VS Prem.
3 monitors, IE 9

hope that helps!
