Thank you - you are right.
It is: Window 7 - After effects CS_4.
Problem is: If I want to change the colour fx. for text or from back ground (soild) - and other places where it is possible to change colours - it is not possible for me
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.
Thank you for using your time!
1) color picker - if I Itake EDIT-PREFERENCE I can not find anyting with colour picker
2) Graphics settings - I do not know where to look
3) I do not have multi-monitor
4) I do not use nVidia Desktop manager
5) I do not know what Alt+Tab is good for
Is it possible to hit a bottom to reset all - becuse I am not a professor behind After effects - that will be the best soloution for me.
Thank you - and I have tryed online help - and the answer was - while AE starts you have to press CTRL+ALT+SHIFT - but it did not solve the problem.
If you for example choise LAYER - NEW - SOLID - it is possible to use the color picker - but still not possible to use the color palette with the color R - G - B.
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?
Thank you - once again.

I have found out of something, about the color problem. If I want to change the color via SOLID SETINGS - it now possible if you place the SOLID COLOR palette over the palette for SOLID SETTINGS - now you can change every color.
I am happy that it works now - even if it is not the correct way told from Adobe.
Thank you for the replays.
