Windows 7: Strange yellow background to pictures (in Windows Photo Viewer)

Strange yellow background to pictures (in Windows Photo Viewer)

I just installed Windows 7 64-bit for the first time. I love it. But there is one small annoyance. When viewing photos or graphics in Windows Photo Viewer, I get a strange yellow tint & background to the images. Same thing happens when I view them in Office Picture Manager.Click on the thumbnail for the full image.

However, does not happen if I view them in IE v8. What gives? Is this something normal? And I know what you're going to ask... are all my video drivers upto date? YES!~

OK, maybe 'yellow' is not it... but look at that image again. I'm referring to everything outside of that green/dark area. Everything outside of that area is BEIGE or... skin color. Still not seeing it? Let's try another sample.



In this image it's everything outside of the white area that is the problem. Why is it so beige??

I do appreciate the link but after having closely followed the steps outlined, it still did not fix my problem.
