I view them with the photo viewer that comes with Windows 7. I export them as JPG sRGB because that seems to be what photo print services such as Costco, Walgreens, etc, use when printing. If I print them out of LR they will be fine as I have color management pretty well under control. I was preparing to send them on a disk figuring that the recipient would either send them out for printing or view them from the disk. I was surprised with the slightly reddish cast when viewing them on the same display as I use for LR.

that is what most think... beside that they are good drivers.
i think you may have a bad monitor profile.
there are many threads about problems caused by bad monitor profiles it in this forum.
have you tried a good image viewer thast supports colormanagement?
im not sure (i dont use it) but i think the win7 viewer is not colormanaged.
another possible source for issues... do you have a wide gamut monitor by any chance?
My 2 monitors are Dell 27” 2711s wide gamut, calibrated with Spyder Elite. When I print using the Epson 3880 I can’t almost a perfect match screen to print.
I shot in the raw using the Canon 5D II, cropped a bit, and then exported. When I open with Windows 7 photo viewer instead of Nero everything is OK. I am assuming that Nero was the problem. I have set Windows 7 photo viewer to be the default for all JPGs.
Thank you for your suggestion.
