Photoshop Elements: My white isn't white anymore in PE9 work space.

Hi, I'm running Photoshop Elements 9 and something seems to have changed.
When I open an image, the white in that image looks creamy. The other white items on the screen, the rule and chequered background are white, not creamy.
When I select the foreground colour swatch the top left-hand side corner is cream not white.
So be absolutely clear about this, the monitor is producing the correct level of white in the rules and background (and in all other programs,) but I cannot achieve white in the PE9 work space.
I assume something in the software, not the monitor, needs recalibrating but I don’t know where to find the control.
Thank you for your attention.
Kind Regards ... Andy

Hi again.
I closed down PE9 and reopened it and the problem has gone away. I had the loss of white issue last night and when checked again this morning the problem was still there so if it was a simple ‘Switch-off-and-start-again-problem’ why didn’t it come right this morning?
So, although the problem seems to have corrected itsself, is there anywhere to adjust the workspace colour independently of the monitor/background display colour?
Kind Regards ... Andy

There are no options to adjust the color of the Photoshop Elements User Interface. But the application is sensitive to color management settings of the system. More likely than not, the problem lies with the color profile attached to your monitor.
