I think encrypted files are red...But I don't think it's your LCD. My laptop is an ancient Thinkpad from 1998 and the screen is better than my dad's two year old Dell.

Shared files don't show up as blue, only encrypted. Compressed files show up as green.

I've never seen any type of file or folder show up red in Windows. Ever.

Damned if I know. I saw it on my PC back in 2001, I got a virgin copy of XP for my Celly. I'm probobly just remembering shit wrong.

EDIT: Server 2003 had those files too! They come stock compressed.

I've got this one file that shows up purple. What kind of file could this be? I think that this is an encrypted file. What do you think, junglizm?

Here's the screenshot:

Ok, maybe I was wrong. I just tested it out on two folders though, and here are the results I got. The public_html directory is compressed and Python is encrypted.

It seems that I was wrong too. It turns out that it's a Microsuck homonized file. It's part of the Winblows Rainbow edition. I should've known something wasn't right when it played It's Raining Men by The Weather Girls during the first welcome/setup screen. Oh well, it could be worse. I could be stuck with Windows ME.
