Windows 7: Switching between color profiles, multiple monitors

Switching between color profiles, multiple monitors

I want do do some filming of me at my workstation for Youtube. I have three monitors, default color settings for them are fine for my eyes. But if I film them as they are, they are way too bright and have a strong blue tint to them as recorded on my camcorder, so the picture the camcorder records is totally washed out and you can't see anything on the screen. I have two Nvidia Geforce video cards and I can change the colour settings using the Nvidia sliders to make the monitors much darker and less blue, for when I'm filming, so that although it looks "wrong" to me sitting there, it looks "right" on the camcorder, but there's a lot of sliders to get through for the three monitors and there doesn't seem to be any way of saving the results in Nvidia as a distinct profile. Then if I want to go back to "normal" use I have to undo all the changes.

Can anyone point me to a method either in Windows or a separate application that would enable me, at the click of a mouse, to go from having three monitors at "correct, normal" colour and brightness settings to "being videod for Youtube" settings, and a single click back again without deleting the special colour settings please?

CCC (catalyst control centre) has the option of setting all the options and saving it as a profile, setting other options and saving it as another profile, you can then easily swap between profiles form the icon in the task bar.

CCC is an AMD/ATI product and my graphics cards are Nvidias. I don't expect I'd be able to install it or get it to work - or should that not be a problem?

Hello folks I always used "switch to other user" when I left my laptop behind for a while (i.e. when I was going to sleep or leaving the house). As I never turn off my laptop (barely never), the point is that I don't want to get people to use my laptop without my permission browsing through my...
