Your monitor profile is bad.
Microsoft Photo Viewer does not use the monitor profile, so using it as a test is pointless.
Yes, the only reason I used Photo Viewer was to prove it wasn't the monitor itself. I have profiled it about seven times and it is always the same. Not sure why it is doing this.
Could be the Spyder. Try following up with ColorVision.
If it was the monitor you would have had the green on everything and not
just a photo.
Agree. Must be either software or Spyder.
To confirm if your problem is caused by a bad monitor profile:
1) If your "grayscale" photo is actually an RGB file with no saturation, open the file in PS and check the R/G/B values by running your cursor over the various tones in the image and watch the R/G/B readouts in the Info Panel. If R=G=B for shadows, midtones and highlights, the your file is good and your monitor profile is bad.
2) If your file is in fact a true 1-channel grayscale file, then your monitor profile is definitely bad.
