Windows 7: Color Managment in Windows 7

Color Managment in Windows 7

My color profile WAS fine, until i deleted my video card drivers(9800GTX+) and my Dell 2208 WFP monitors drivers. Now it messed up. I cant recall how i got the color profile I was using before but I believe Adobe Photoshop Cs4 prompted me to use it. So I removed CS4 and reinstalled it but its not asking me to load a profile like it did last time. The profile had very life like color as compared to the washed out grayish tint to all items now.

Search your PC (C:?) for ICM files.

Sorry i wasnt more clear. I downloaded the driver and ICM profiles from Dell, and installed the DVI profile. However when i switch to this profile, or any profile the colors dont actually change.

Thanks for your continued effort to assist me!

EDIT: Just read the instructions for the dell driver:
1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled 2208WFP Win7
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R222020. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.
7.Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R222020 in the Open textbox and then click OK.
8.Follow the on-screen installation instructions.
I double clicked it this time but it is not a self extracting file, just a regular zip file from what I can see, and my path doesnt mention the one above. My path is C:\dell\drivers\R163990\R163990 but if i put that in the run box it does nothing.
