Plot options broken in Mathematica version 3.01 for Windows

We are having the following problem with Mathematica 3.0:

In our copy of Mathematica 3.01 for windows (under both winnt4.0
and win95), most of the standard options for the Plot[] function
don't seem to work. For example, after loading the Graphics` package, 
attempting to generate LogLogPlots produce plots with only one axis 
drawn and with no tick marks shown etc. Also, the plot seems to have
a different colored background (even though no color specifications
are given). This color cannot be removed by Format->Background 
Color->None.

Similar behavior occurs with the ordinary Plot[] (without any
packages loaded) when non-default options are given to Ticks, Axes, 
and other related option fields (even the examples in Section 2.9.5 
of the Mathematica book cannot be reproduced by the kernel).

Our license number is ------, $CreationDate is March 10, 1997.

thanks for a prompt reply (and hopefully a fix)

If anyone has any similar experience, I will appreciate hearing from
them.

As a related note: I have sent the above message to
support at wolfram.com twice this week, and it has been completely
ignored (apart from the automatic acknowledgements) so far.  After
spending $1500 on a software package with a relatively small
(supported) user base, receiving no support for it (as far as I can
understand the "90 day free economy service" to registered users means
not much more than "you can browse our web site for free") is
outrageous.

This leaves a very bad taste.
