Windows 7: Help! Windows Seven inverting program color settings/images

Help! Windows Seven inverting program color settings/images

So how much do you want to bet the solution is so ridiculously easy that this whole thread is going to be silly?

Basically im about to go bald by how much im pulling my hair out. Needless to say, my adobe cs5 color settings are inverting because of windows seven.

I know its because of seven because its also affecting other programs such as iTunes by inverting the cover art imagery as well.

In terms of my adobe software I made sure it wasnt preferences or color settings by deleting my preferences folder and resetting the color settings back to RGB 1998. Sadly though, after rebooting a few times, i am still getting the color invertion of doom.

I've tried doing a master invert by pressing alt, shift print screen, to invert everything and then click it over to normal and that seemed to work for lightroom but not adobe photoshop or itunes.

I mean is this something deeper? Or is this something really stupid that im overlooking?
Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you!

PS. Everything else is normal. Such as display, internet etc... its only when im dealing with software. I've never had this problem before, being that when i first downloaded the programs they appeared normally.

Try getting the latest version of your Adobe CS5 or run it in Compatibility Mode

Try running it in compatibility for Windows XP, maybe it can lessen the color issue.

Hey thanks for replying!

So to begin with the programs were cs5, and its not only my adobe programs but its affecting other applications as well such as itunes.

Program wise it functions normally, its just the color profiles are all messed up as instead of RGB its either washing it out or inverting it.

So i tried compatibility mode and it still isnt working tried other versions as well, such as service pack 1 etc.. windows xp, still doesnt work.

So im curious if there is a way to reset the settings back to factory defaults without affecting any of the data that i have on this laptop.

Thank you so much!
