Photoshop Colouring Problem

I've checked the memories and couldn't find anything, so apologies if this is wrong :)

Basically, I use a Mac and Photoshop CS2. I was making icons all fine and dandy, and uploading then. But when looking at them on someone elses computer, specifically a windows computer, they looked a lot brighter (like...pushing fluorescent sometimes!) & was advised by someone on here to change my computer screen settings, it was the same as a windows computer. I did, and my art now looks the same on all computers.

However, my photoshop doesn't agree with this. When I import any .png image, I get a 'embedded profile mismatch' pop up, and can choose 'Use the embedded profile (instead of working space)', in order for photoshop to open the image exactly as it looks.

However, I don't get this option when importing any other kind of image, and there's a large change in the colour, from what I can see on the internet or just looking at on my computer.

I also can't directly save the image from photoshop, as it changes in colour again. I have to print screen and crop the item out, in order for it to look the same colour. Which is fine for icons...but I can't do that for things that are bigger than my computer screen.

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I was going to include images...but I don't know if it's just looking different, and therefore all images would look the same to everyone else!


Thank you :)
