Windows 7: Live Essentials and photoshop gone yellow!

22 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 & Ultimate x64
Live Essentials and photoshop gone yellow!

my screen looks fine when i use all the other things on my computer but when i am using the above two programs the some elements on the screen appear a yellowy tint.

Photoshop also used to warn me that there was something wrong with the monitor profile, but i stopped the warning.

Also every time i log on there are kind of faint vertical lines, but these can be removed by changing the screen resolution and then reverting them back.

I am total lost as to what to next

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Make a system image, now uninstall photoshop. I think that is the problem. Maybe we can get you back to normal. If that occurs, we can decide try to reinstall photoshop. If we can't get back to normal, just use the system image to return to your current condition.

Thanks to both who replied, i used zone23's solution because it didn't mean that i had to uninstall Photoshop. The problem is no longer a problem thanks to you both.

Your welcome. Although mine wasn't exactly right on the money it at least got you to were you needed to be. Windows 7 is a little different then it used to be as far as color pallets go. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

You would think Adobe would update monitor profiles, I get a error message with my Samsung 2243BW monitor too.
