Window 7 Photo Viewer shows pictures with orange and yellow tint.

Original title: Winows 7 photo viewer

Within the past few weeks I have noticed that when I go to preview a picture using the Windows Photo Viewer it has an orange/yellow tint to it and because of this I can't actually see the colors of the picture are. This happens with every picture I view regardless as to it's format (jpg, gif, png, etc). I am able to view the picture in a slideshow with it's normal colors and opening the picture in another program (such as Paint or Gimp) displays the picture normally as well. Any other colors display correctly on my screen as well (nothing looks out of the ordinary) until I click on a picture to preview it.

I have the same problem.  The border to the right and left of the photos have a yellowish tint to them... Got any ideas how to fix this???

One other thing worth mentioning - if you are running multiple displays make sure you do it for each display otherwise it will look normal on only one of them.

Thanks,
