Internet Exploder and colors


First of all, I think its weak that M$ couldn't get their color schemes to match up with Apple's color scheme. The graphite isnt the same as Apple's graphite, and there is no similar 'blue' color option.

On to my very minor but nevertheless annoying problem. Every time I start IE up, the highlight color is the most horrific flourescent bluish green color. If I go back to the System Preferences and reset the color to Graphite then the highlight color is correct. But the next time I start it up, its that seizure-spawning color again.

Anyone know why? Or am I the only one getting this problem?
so that's where the color comes from. most annoying. I've got it too (it's like a disease) but haven't figured out where it comes from yet.
