"LCD color management & conversion appears to be defective" notice.

I got a new Dell computer in April with Vista.  I recently loaded Adobe Photoshop Elemmets 7.  I keep getting the above statement every time I boot it up.  I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to computers, but I sure would like to get going with my new Elements. Hopefully you have a simple solution before I go out and buy some other photo softwear.

Yes.  It's mostly harmless.

Adobe Photoshop and Elements both check the installed monitor and try to load a specially defined color scheme that adjusts the image colors on the screen to make them closer to "true" colors (LCD monitors are not the most accurate when it comes to reproducing color schemes).

So the error message you see is merely Elements saying that it cannot use the color adjustment.  This should not affect what you (or 99% of other users) do in the slightest.  If you were a professional photo editor and need to match colors down to the 1/32,000,000 shade of accuracy, then that error becomes important.

Hi mynameislizzy,

But Elements still runs after you dismiss that message, right?

Yes, but is it fully in tact doing all that it should?  Since I am a beginner, I don't know the answer to this question.  Do you suggest I should just ignor the notice every tine?
