    Have you checked the HEX value for what is supposed to be white? White is #FFFFFF. Also, have you a calibrated monitor?

    Sometimes Windows updates download monitor profiles that replace what you had already.  Nothing says those profiles are good!

    Edit in Photoshop an image that you think should be white (my border in the shot below) select the colour picker tool and the colour chart comes up,. Move the colour picker onto what should by the white area and #FFFFFF should show (as below) . If it doesn't then it isn't white

     

    If you use Firefox browser you can also check the colour on the screen (on the web) by using the Colour Zilla addon, which does a similar thing (but not in PS obviously)

     

    If the colour is white but it doesn't look it on your monitor you either have a colour profile problem, or your monitor is wonked.
