Windows 7: Nvidia color control vs Windows color control settings?

Nvidia color control vs Windows color control settings?

I am trying to set my monitor's screen give accurate renditions of my pictures. I use Quick Gamma to set gamma. When doing this I can use either Nvidia's controls or windows controls (right click desktop>Nvidia Control Panel. When using Nvidia's Control Panel, there are two choices: Use other applications control color settings or Use Nvidia settings.

First question: Am I correct in assuming that the former setting is Windows?

I always check the button to use Nvidia settings (and then Apply>OK), but when I go back to this screen at a later time, the Other applications control color settings is always selected. How come? I'd like to default to Nvidia.

Interestingly, no one has replied, yet. This Nvidia board is not very active...

One of the things I'm thinking of is that I have my monitor set to its highest and best resolution. Could it be that using this settings locks out Nvidia???

FWIW: I've experienced the same issues with the NVIDIA control panel. I've just resigned myself to making color corrections with windows controls. I haven't found a way to keep the NVIDIA settings radio button marked. Maybe I missed something in the user guide:
