IN vi MODE YELLOW PATCHES ON SCREEN


Friends,

While seeing any text file in vi mode, yellow patches are appearing on my screen in all spaces. Same are not appearing in cat mode. this is very clumsy to understand the text . HOw to remove those yello patches.

It seems earlier i have used a command to remove empty lines in between text file and this problem is occuring since then.

Pl guide.

Thanks and regards
Rao
