jmc777's link fixed it for me (regular Vista Premium) - here is what I did.
1 - right click on desktop, select personalize then display settings. Click
Advanced Settings, then select "color management" tab, then click the color
management button again.
It showed one profile and I was unable to click the "remove" button. I
clicked the checkbox "use my settings for this device". I could then
highlight the profile and click Remove.
I don't know what it will do to the system, but it fixes the yellow
Note, after the profile is deleted, by clicking the "profiles" button then
selecting "reset my settings to the system defaults" it seems to recreate the
profile, but this time pictures are not yellow (though I have not rebooted
yet to see if that makes a difference).
