Color problems

#1
Greetings,

I do a lot of web design and I'm running into a lot of problems with color on Windows 7. I just can't seem to get things under control.

My specs:

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Core i7 X980 3.33GHz
24BG of RAM
Duel NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Dell 2407WFP
Dell U2410

My problem is that color looks completely different and problematic in various applications:
- In Windows Photo Viewer things look overexposed in a sense, with heavy color banding and blow out
- In Photoshop CS5 things look completely washed out when proof colors are off, and with proof colors on and set to monitor rgb it looks extremely oversaturated
- In Fireworks CS5 stuff so far always looks correct

The problems are inconsistent across the two monitors. For instance Windows Photo Viewer seems to look fine on the second monitor (U2410.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
