Windows 7: Windows photo viewer is an annoying yellow colour.

Windows photo viewer is an annoying yellow colour.

I am really annoyed at the colour of my Windows Photo Viewer. I searched this forum and found there has been other who have had this problem and there were replies on how to fix this. I tried to follow the instructions to sort my issue but to be truthful I was too thick to follow the step by step instructions.

Is there a more simpler way to sort this problem which an idiot like me can follow?
