Windows 7: Color Management in PS CS4 and Windows 7x64 (problem)

Color Management in PS CS4 and Windows 7x64 (problem)

Hello all!
Recently got some very annoying color management issue in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

I use Windows 7 x64 Ultimate (Polish version) and have IIyama PLE2607WS Display (Screenshot from my WCM tab below).

I got also Nvidia GeForce 260 GTX graphic card and latest drivers 260.89 (I have tried also 260.99 but I am not sure that drivers are a problem here).

So, when I save file to jpeg format in Photoshop CS4 and then I browse the output file in Adobe Bridge everything looks like it should be - colours are like I see them in PS.

I use also XnView 1.97 to browsing graphic files and over there colours are very bright (I mean very intensive). That ruins all my picture because the same thing happens when I upload a picture on my flickr account.

Below there are screenshots I made to show you what is the problem.
1) it's a screenshot taken by XnView while I was browsing my psd file in Adobe Bridge in fullscreen mode:

2) The next is my final (original) file from Adobe Photoshop CS4 (and this like I see the image at flickr page and in XnView or other non Adobe browser)

I think you can see the difference. The colours are very intensive and quite overexposured comparing to the first one.

So, the problem is in Adobe Photoshop Color profile (I assume) (below my settings form PS CS 4)

or it could be problem with my IIyama monitor calibration (anyone of you has similar model?).

I just don't know how to setup all of these colour profiles and where, to get my output, final image in jpeg like I see it in Photoshop CS4.

I know very little about colour management in Windows (so far I haven't got problems with this).
Could you give me any piece of advice what should I do or what colour (ICC) profile should be set (either in Photoshop and in Windows Color Management) to get proper colours? Anyone had a similar problem ?

Maybe anyone who has IIyama Display and use Windows 7 and PS CS4 or any other version could share his/her experience with me (how to set all these colour profiles ...)?
I will apprieciate your every reply!
BTW! (I set my display calibration in Win 7 calibration tool but it didn't change anything).
