It looks like you have a defective monitor profile.
As a diagnostic tool and a temporary fix, try setting the monitor profile to sRGB as described here:
If that fixes the issue, you should ideally calibrate your monitor with a hardware calibrator, which will create a new, sound profile.
It worked perfectly. I will try to look for a hardware calibrator to create a new profile for my Samsung Syncmaster 2494HS monitor
Since the manufacturers profile got corrupted you could try re-installing that profile. I'd try that before I'd go out and buy a color calibration device.
I wouldn't. Manufacturers' profiles are notoriously bad, and a custom profile created with a calibrator is the best solution.
Even sRGB is probably better.
I wouldn't either. A hardware calibrator will compensate for the foibles of an individual monitor, while the manufacturer's profile doesn't. Even if it started out perfect, the monitor's colour response changes over time, and the manufacturer's profile will get progressively worse.
Excuse me but wasn't the problem caused by a Corrupted profile, Not just a Bad profile.
If the OP loads, re-installs, the manufacturers profile and it doesn't work he can always go back to the sRGB profile until he gets a hardware calibrator.
It was and IS an option.
Nobody (except you) said it was corrupted. The word used was 'defective'. Often, when profiles go bad, the problem is caused by a new, crappy profile being installed by an operating system update. Per and I are expressing our opinion, you're welcome to yours.
It doesn't really matter if the profile had been corrupted, or was bad out of the box.
And as Hal says, OS updates can install bad profiles - probably "new and improved" profiles from the manufacturer.
I think the main point here is to avoid these profiles altogether, and to use a calibrator.
It's also a good idea to keep an eye on the color management setup in the OS, and check that the correct profile is set as default, particularly after an OS update.
On Windows, this is done by pressing the Windows key+R, entering colorcpl, and pressing Enter.
Thanks all for your comments. For the time being I'm using the first
recommendation. Tried to reinstall the original but same problem.

Well at least you gave it a shot. Time to get a calibration device.
