color swatches - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

Adobe 7.01. My color swatches have somehow changed tones, even the default colors have shifted. The browns are greens, the reds are yellows and orange. I use windows XP but had no problem until today. Does anyone have any idea how to reset these colors?...

    As the FAQ says: fix your display profile.

    Chris Cox; My working space and pictures in my file have the correct colors. Why are the swatches the only thing effected?

    Then, have you tried resetting the swatches?

    (I'm still betting on a bad display profile)

    Chris Cox; I have reset the swatches; checked the profile and it matches my original set up. Is there a procedure you would recommend to check the profile. Maybe I am missing something.
    Chris; do you have relatives in PA? I noticed you went to college in Pittsburg.I knew two Cox boys who would be in their 70" now.

    I have pants older than Chris. <grin>

    Richard, you might want to use Adobe Gamma and create a new profile with a different starting point - that is, don't use the existing profile, start with one of the canned ones and create a new monitor profile.

    No relatives named Cox in PA, sorry.

    Use Adobe Gamma to create a new profile, as explained in the FAQ.

    Chris; I used Adobe Gamma to create a new profile and saved under a new name. The settings came out identical to my previous profile but my swatches are back to normal. I guess the other profile was corrupted. Thanks for your help.
    My grandchildren thank you as well. They appear to be budding artists.
