Good afternoon,

Actually, the term you're looking for (I believe) is the dreaded "moire"
effect (there's an accent on the "e", actually). This is what we do, and it
mostly works:

To avoid the moiré effect
1. In Control Panel, double-click Display.
2. Select the Settings tab
3. Under Color Palette, select "True color".
4. Select the Appearance tab.
5. Under Scheme, select the "Windows Standard" scheme.
6. Change the Desktop Background color to white.
7. Choose Save As and name the new scheme.
This will allow you to switch between your preferred color scheme,
and the one for screen captures.
8. With the new scheme selected, click Apply.
You will get a message indicating that you will need to restart the
computer for your changes to take effect.
9. Click Yes.
10. After the computer restarts, on the Start menu, click Run.
11. In the Open box, type "regedit" and click OK.


Using Windows Explorer, locate and run the file "regedit.exe."
The Registry Editor appears.
12. In the tree view on the left, open these folders: HKEY_USERS |
Default | Control Panel | Colors.
13. On the right side of the Registry Editor window, double-click the
"ButtonHilight" item.
The Edit String dialog box appears.
14. In the Value data box, change the value to 230 230 230.
15. Click OK.
16. Double-click the "Scrollbar" item.
The Edit String dialog box appears.
17. In the Value data box, change the value to 230 230 230.
18. Click OK.
19. Repeat steps 13-18 for the folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Control Panel
| Colors.
20. On the Registry menu, click Exit.
21. Restart your computer.

Hope that helps. Thanks. DB.

Cross-posted to the TechWriters List

I'm using SnagIt to do my screen captures, and the area where there is a
scroll bar is filled is a check pattern (what I call a marquee). Does anyone
know how to remove the marquee so that the screen captures are clean?
