Windows Photo Viewer has suddenly changed color

I opened my pictures and doubled clicked one, that brought up the picture viewer. Everything has a peach hue to it. WTF!!! How do I get it back to a white background? I don't have a Samsung monitor, I have an Acer V173 (I say this cause the solutions I have found so far are for Samsung) Please help

Thanks

This looks like the same problem, you might want to try what's suggested,

Windows Photo Viewer background changed colour.

OK, nevermind what I said. To mark it solved just click on the red triangle and write solved and the mods will mark it for you.
