Windows 7: Photos have a blue tint

Photos have a blue tint

Here's a weird one. When I open photos in Windows Photo Viewer, they look correct. When I open them in any other application, or use one as a desktop background, there's a blueish tint that, while it doesn't look ridiculous, isn't what the picture should look like.

Monitor Tint
The best way to describe it is it looks like I'm viewing my monitor through polarized sunglasses. There's a yellow/green tint. It happened (coincidence?) after I burned a music CD using Windows Media Center. Prior to that and for the past year it's worked perfectly. It's NOT a monitor issue. ...

Could someone tint these?
These icons are from TrueTransparency(I use it on Win7 Starter to make my windows transparent). Could someone tint them red, but still have them transparent? Thanks in advanced.
