Windows 7: How can I set up more than one color profile?

How can I set up more than one color profile?

My monitor seems to be faulty or just crap because when I first switch it on the gamma is way high and then it goes back its normal level after about 20 minutes, it is also too high anyway so I use "color management" to set a profile with less gamma...previously I have set 2 profiles one with less gamma and one with even less for when I first switch the monitor on.

Now, every time I try to set up the second profile it just overwrites the first one. How can I set up more than one profile please?

I will just use the Nvidia Control Panel then.

I worked out a way to do it, remember my problem is that each time I calibrated my display it over-wrote the .icc from the previous calibration....it kept calling it "CalibratedDisplayProfile-1" each time I ran the calibration.

The color profile .icc files are stored in "system32/spool/drivers/color" so I can just rename the actual "CalibratedDisplayProfile-1" file to something else so when I next calibrate it it won't get over-written.
