I had purchased PS CS# from Ebay, BAD move. It was pirated as I found out trying to get support from Adobe. I have reported that to all authorities and purchased PS CS4 from Adobe. Here's my problem. I originally had PS Elements 6.0 and then installed the pirated version. When I found out it was pirated I took it off my system, also had the gray scale problem with it and it also caused my Elements to show gray scales as purple scales.
In removing the bad software I did the uninstall and then used revo uninstaller to remove all the remaining registries. Rebooted and loaded up Photoshop CS4 and the color swatch panel still looks like shades of purple. I have my color profile set correctly and my video card, Nvidia GE9500GT was just updated from Nvidia to the latest version. I am running Vista Business, have 4G of RAM, it prints okay but the screen just doesn't show anything with grays as grays but purples! It driving me nuts.
I drew a custom shape on a white background, black box with a gray box. The gray box looks visually on the screen as a shade of purple. I sent the file to my friend who is using PS CS3 and he sees it as gray! AND if I open it in any other software app it looks okay, it's just off in Photoshop apps.
Could it be that something is still lingering around from the old pirate stuff???
Thanks, any help will be appreciated.
