Auto-image compression in Photo Gallery?

When I view pictures in Windows Photo Gallery, they look like this:

http://s212.photobucket.com/albums/c...=SNAG-0000.jpg
http://s212.photobucket.com/albums/c...=SNAG-0002.jpg

Compared to on a browser it is much clearer:

http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...misc/img29.jpg
http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/c...91p234copy.jpg

I got the first set of pictures by using a screen capture program and
uploading it. And also just to note, when I view those first 2 in
windows photo gallery, they are even more messed up than as they show
there (just as the second set are).

What I'm thinking the problem is, is that there is some auto image
compression going on when a picture is opened in a certain program. But
I could be, and probably am, wrong about that.

This also affects working in photoshop, however when I do Save For Web,
the picture is the same as in a browser. So I've been basically using
that to check things as a I work on them. Another thing that shows
pictures correctly is the folder thumbnails.

And just some other information:
I use Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit, without SP1, but I did try the
beta of it and uninstalled it shortly after. It's possible that these 2
are related, but I really can't remember when this problem started. I
have tried uninstalling many programs and updates that I had installed
since a date when I know for certain I wasn't having these problems. I
also tried messing with the Color Management thing and the NVIDIA
Control Panel, but those didn't work either.

If you have read this, thank you, and I hope I can get some help in
this matter soon.
