    Which "color window"? From where do you invoke it? What version are you using? what's your operating system and computer specs? You need to be more specific!

    Which color picker have you set in the prefs? The system color picker or the Adobe one? Also what are your graphics settings? Any chance that you have a multi-monitor setup, but have removed a monitor or changed the screen layout? Also, do you use dialog repositioning e.g. in the nVidia Desktop manager? I'd check those things and in caser of doubt reset to factory defaults. Also, when trying to invoke the color picker, cycle through teh active Windows using Strg+Tab or Alt+Tab. There's a chance your dialog may show up there and can be selected. That way at least you know it is actually working, just nowhere to be seen.

    You can restore the default AE preferences.  To find the how-to, go to AE's online help and search it using the search term default preferences.

    I'm still not exactly sur what you are doing or seeing. If you can use the color picker with a new solid, it should work just the same elsewhere. This sounds more and more strange. Can you provide some screenshots?
