We need more detail. What program are you printing with? Do you get the same color effect no matter what program you are using? The program you use when you get color halos have you used that program before and did not get halos?
Have you tried a different program an still get halos? If so, have you tried reinstalling you printer software package?
Do the halos appear to be intentional or do they appear to be a quality print problem? If it looks like a quality ink issue, have you removed the color toners and slowly tilted them side to side to mix the toner? If you do that and get good print results, its time to get new or refurbished color toners (or refill them).
If the halos appear to be intentional, you probably have a software problem, anything from a degraded driver to settings in the printer manufacturer's software, to Windows. If the problem seems to be software related, you may want to try my "keep it simple stupid" and not try to find out precisely where the problem is but simple do some broad but quick actions.
First, I would run your registry repair and registry clean utility(ies). I would do a hard drive defrag & then a registry defrag.
If none of this ends the problem, I'd uninstall and reinstall the entire software package that came with your printer. Before I did that, I think I'd reinstall the program that is printing halos in color mode.

Thank you also. I ran the calibration program a few times and now the printing is clear! Yay! I had tried it once before, but not several times..
