Windows 7: colors are different after 10.10 drivers.

colors are different after 10.10 drivers.

After installing the 10.10 drivers for my HD 5770. Some colors of things such as my internet browser and CCC is different color. Like the color seems more "warm" compared to 10.9 drivers.

For example, I have a silver theme for my Chrome, after the 10.10 drivers the silver is less silver and more red-ish/pink-ish.

I downloaded AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology Edition instead of Catalyst Software Suit.

and a couple have fixed it with either checking or unchecking the "Use EDID" setting, depending how it was set.

Not that it helps, but I don't have the pink tint after installing the 10.10.

EDIT: won't let me rep you guys something about spreading reputation before giving it.
