Check Color management in control panel. The yellow tint is from mis-configured Color management

If you want to change the system default colors for a specific device so that the color settings are used by all users on the computer who are using the default color settings, do the following (Note that to change the system default color settings, you need to be an administrator or a member of the Administrators group):
  1. Open Color Management by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Color Management.
  2. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Change System Defaults.
  3. From the Device list, select the color device that you want to associate with one or more color profiles for all users on the computer that are using the default color settings for that device.
  4. Do one or more of the following:
    • If you want to add a new color profile for the selected device, click Add, and then go to step 5.
    • If you want remove a color profile for the selected device, click the color profile, and then click Remove. To continue, go to step 6.
    • If you want to make a color profile the default profile for the selected device, click the color profile that you want to set as the default, and then click Set as Default Profile. To continue, go to step 6.
  5. In the Associate Color Profile dialog box, do one or both of the following:
    • If you want to specify a color profile that’s already installed on the computer, click the color profile in the list, and then click OK.
    • If you want to specify a custom color profile that isn’t already installed on the computer, click Browse, locate the custom color profile, and then click Add.
      The selected color profile (or profiles) is now associated with the device and will be used describe the color characteristics of that device.
  6. Do one of the following (Optional):
    • To save the association between the selected device and the current set of profiles that it uses, click Profiles, and then click Save associations. In the File name box, type a name for the device association, and then click Save.
    • To load a device association file so that the selected device uses the color settings that are specified in the association file, click the Profiles button, and then click Load associations. Locate and select the saved association file, and then click Open.
  7. Close the Color Management – System Defaults dialog box.
  8. Close the Color Management dialog box.
    Now, if the default color settings aren’t already being used (which means that the Use my settings for this device check box is selected), the user will be notified when they open Color Management that the system default color settings have been changed. At that time, a user can choose to merge those changes with their own settings or reset their color settings to match the new system default color settings for the selected device.
