The JCheckBox is fully blackened when I start my GUI based application on Windows 2000
but it works fine on Windows XP ie displays fine.

jCheckBox = new javax.swing.JCheckBox();
jCheckBox.setText("Standard Lines");

Also this happens when I have JRE 1.4.2_05 . With JRE 1.3 both Windows 2000 and XP display
checkboxes fine. Any idea for a fix is appreciated.....

I tried jCheckBox.setBackground(java.awt.Color.white);

but that doesn't help too.
