PS7 Trouble with Text and outlining

I just downloaded the newest version of PS7 and I'm having trouble with the way my text shows up as well as outlining. I've checked the memories, and since the outlining text tutorial images aren't showing up, I've pretty much had to go on text alone, which isn't all that bad, but I can't change the stroke from being red. I know that on my color pallette to the left I have red as a color, but that is a totally different shade, and even if I have lime green selected the stroke still comes out red, and using a paintbucket doesn't help because the red stroke just goes outside of what I filled with the paintbucket.

And as you notice, my text at 14 point 04b_24 looks jacked. even at 6 point you can hardly read it, which is why I set it to 14 so you could see the text. I've played with the preferences, changed stuff to pixels, no anti-alias is selected, so I don't know how to get it like in my icon (which I made with psp8, since I pretty much know my way around 8 ad wanted to learn ps7 as well). I don't know what I'm doing wrong or if I'm just totally missing something here.

Here is a screenshot of my photoshop, to help you out as to what I'm referring to in my explanation:
