Very nice--thanks! I kind of liked the very pale orange background--made the colors "pop"---so I'm not so sure it was a bug--likely intentional, just like LCD panels in the home theater departments of stores have their contrast, sharpness, etc all cranked.

Now would you know how to make 7 zip behave with this application. I am actually having to choose a different app to view a photo that I had encrypted with 7 zip.

Heres how to correct it:

1. open control panel
2. type color in the search bar and click on the green color management link
3. in the dialog that appears tick the box under your monitor name which says "use my settings for this device"
4. click on the add button
5. There will appear a list of color profiles. You want to select sRGBIEC611966-2.1 and click ok
6. click on the set as default profile button and then close button

Repeat this procedure for each monitor you may have.

edit: @jag odd i didnt see your instructions
