I have had no problems but downloaded AI to my laptop, my daughter drew on it first but said she had a problem with fill colour for the brush. 
Since then I can not get the brush or pencil to fill the colour I select in the properties. I can select the colour for fill and line but after drawing the line colour only remains not the fill colour which goes back to white box/red line (none colour). 
If I select the stroke I can fill that way. 
I have unistalled and reinstalled a older verison just to make sure it wasn';t a bug with the new download, i have tried to reset my preferences, opened new document but this problem is still happening, I am not in outline view either. 

can anyone please help? I am sure its just a simple button that may have been pressed when my daughter was on but I just can't seem to work out what it is.

Let me move this to the Illustrator forum for you, which I think is the appropriate forum for your question if AI means Adobe Illustrator.

The Using the Community forum is for help in using the Adobe Support Community forums, not for help with specific programs. Product questions should be posted in the associated product community.
