    I just installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0. When I start the
    program, I get an error message that reads:

    The monitor profile "DELL E176FP G2.2 D65" appears to be defective.
    Please rerun your monitor calibration software.

    There are two buttons which I can choose from: "Ignore Profile" or
    "Use Anyway"

    Why am I getting this message and how do I re-run my calibration

    IIRC Photoshop and its variants come with a monitor calibration
    utility - try checking what else was installed along with Elements.

    Not sure about Elements, but Photoshop no longer ships with Adobe Gamma.
    It was only good for CRTs and with most monitors out there now LCDs,
    Adobe dropped it.

    That error has occurred for years on Dell and Samsung (at least)
    monitor profiles. Not having a hardware color calibrator (yet), I
    have used a few different software calibrators and found Adobe Gamma
    to produce an excellent match for my Dell 2405 flat panel to Canon
    Photo Pro and Ilford Classic Pearl photo paper. In AG, I start with
    the generic sRGB monitor profile.

    Same Problem

    Hi Mark,
    I am having the same problem, but I've had this software since last year and today, I got this error. Were you able to get a solution to the problem? When I print pictures now, they are green!
