Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer has weird Colors

Windows Photo Viewer has weird Colors

Hey guys.. I had this problem before and someone here helped me fix it very quick and easy and I completely don't remember how we did.

When I open a photo or any picture for that matter on my PC with Windows Photo Viewer (default program) there's a Yellowish Green color around it.. Like it's not white around it.. Like the photo viewer's colors are all weird.. but if I open a photo or something with Nero Photo viewer or Anything else then the background is white and the photo's look much better.

I think it was some sort of Windows 7 Adobe RGB or something profile somewhere. it was a simple fix but I don't remember how we did it.

any help would be great. Thanks!

2. In the Color Management dialog box, click to select the Use my settings for this device check box.

Open an image in Windows Live Photo Gallery to verify that the issue is resolved.

Note: The color profiles that nees to be ICC or WCS color profiles that are been associated with all display devices or monitors.
