Could you provide some screenshots?
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!
Thanks for the prompt response. My monitor is calibrated. The whites in Bridge are true but in photoshop are creamy so I am happy my monitor is ok. How do I check my hex value?

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.
Not sure what I have done, but the issue has now gone away. thanks for your contributions guys, greatly appreciated
