<< The rest is more tricky. There does appear to be a problem in un-associating profiles by the normal routes (right-clicking on the profile in Explorer or by using the Associate box). However you can do it via the Registry. If you go to Hkey_LocalMachine/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/ICM and click on it, you will see the monitor, printer, scanner, and space profiles that are "installed" at the moment. You will also see that some of them have a data entry starting with 00 and those that are the default profiles will start with 01 or 02. The best thing here is to delete any that start with numbers (and delete the Adobe gamma profile - Adobe Monitor Settings.icm - if it is still there). Then go to HkeyLM/Software/Adobe/color/monitor/monitor0 or 1 and delete any reference to Adobe Monitor Settings.icm (this is the Adobe Gamma profile that may still be hanging around). No-one seems to know what this entry does; I suspect it is not used any more, but deleting it doesn't seem to do any harm and removes a possible source of conflict. Now go back to Explorer and look in your profile folder (Windows/System32/spool/drivers/color) and clear out all unwanted monitor profiles (right click on them, uninstall them if they are installed, and delete them (or move them to a floppy if you think you might need them one day). >> OK...I just threw caution to the wind and activated the registry editor..... Here is what I found (and if this is getting too off topic someone just say so and I will take it off list) 1)Regarding the dissociation...I got to Hkey_LocalMachine/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/ICM except that under Windows NT folder there was not a folder or file ICM 2) Under HkeyLM/Software/Adobe/color/monitor/ I found a monitor0 and a monitor1, though I only have one monitor. Under each there was a column for Name, Type, and Data. Under Monitor 0 therewere 3 different names....two had an icon with an ab in itand the third with some 0 and 1 in it that looked as follows Name Type Data (default) REG_SZ (Value Not Set) Monitor Profile REG_SZ SM75..(the Synchmaster profile I could not dissociate Primary Monitor REG_D 0x00000(I forget how many 0s) Under Monitor 1 there was Default REG_SZ Monitor Profile REG_SZ Adobe Monitor Setting Interestingly in Real World Photoshop it says that in order to make sure the correct profile loads to delete the Adobe Monitor Setting and type in the file location for the new profile. But this all still feels like I am getting in over my head. If the Photoshop 6.01 lists my RGB Monitor Profile as the Photocal profile and under advanced settings on control panel the Photocal profile is set as the default and I have removed Adobe Gamma from my Startup folder.....then why change a thing?? As you can see, this was more of an exploratory in the registry than actual editing...I looked to see what was in the folders but didn't change or delete anything.
