When you paste in from outside, Adobe converts the image from it's color profile to whatever color profile you're working in.
In this case one of your color profiles isn't working like it should.

I found a related problem here: http://adobe.groupbrowser.com/t158930.html
There's a table that shows where your color profiles are located here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=321382

As noted in the first link, the first thing to try is opening the "convert to profile" dialog (edit-->convert to profile) on a new image. If that doesn't work, create a temporary folder, then visit the second link and find your color profiles. Start moving them out to the temporary folder, test, and return them to their location until you isolate the problem.
