Upgraded my video card from a Radeon HD 5770 to a GeForce GTX 660, now the blue colors are off (in some programs) and giving a purple tint...

So the full blues look purple in some programs, like in Windows Photo Viewer and Photoshop. For example, I have an image of a deep blue sky and it looks fine as a thumbnail in Windows Explorer. But when I open it in either Windows Photo Viewer or Photoshop, the blues have a purple tint/cast. If I set that image as a Desktop Background, the blues look fine. If I open that image in a browser, it has the purple cast. And I don't think it's just photos that affected, the "Downloaded" bar in µTorrent looks a bit purple now as well.
I have tried rolling back the drivers, but no luck. Not sure what to do next, any suggestions on how to fix this? If the blue is fine as a Desktop Background, then blues on the bottom layer is rendering correctly? But if the image is on a layer/in certain programs, the video card renders the blues incorrectly?
