I keep getting the error "LCD color management and conversion" appears to be defective."?

I have read the previous answers to this question but this problem seems to be different.
I have been using the same computer and monitor for over a year now.  My OS is Vista Business.    All of a sudden this error message start to appear when I open Photoshop CS4.  I'm using eye-one (xrite) to calibrate my monitor and the profile is made and shows up in the correct place.  I have made several new ones and have removed all the old ones.  This is driving me crazy!!!   Please help.

You need to download a Vista Recovery Disk or use your Vista Setup Disk to start your PC and launch system restore to go back to a restore point when there was no problem.

A downloadable version of Vista Recovery Disk is as follow.

(I assume that your computer is of Vista 32 bit.)

A tutorial of Vista Windows Recovery is in the URL below.

When a problem appears in Vista and there are no clues from google, it seems to me the last resort is to use system restore as Vista is much better in system restore than the system restore in XP. System Restore in Vista is just like a time machine to go back to the exact state when the problem does not exist. But the drawback is that it consumes a lot of hard disk apace and it will restore the applications that you have removed and old version of document on desktop,

So, before your use System Restore, make sure all user data has been properly backup as it is just too powerful if Vista thinks that the path you stored your data is part of the system folders.

In a nutshell, System Restore can reduce the time of troubleshooting (except the problem is caused by hardware failure) but it must be used with due care.

I solved the problem by accident. I was going to download the recovery disk and proceed as suggested but thought it wise to find something else to do while this computer was in use so I went to the display (monitors) area to remove the extended monitor I have.  There I noticed that the monitor considered #1 was not the monitor that I use with the profile.  As soon as I fixed this problem and chose the correct monitor as the primary - and removing the one I was going to use on a different computer, the problem was solved.
Thanks so much for you help!!!  CatDiva
