Thread Starter 
1. Go to My Computer (primary drive where you windows installation is and: Copy the ".icc" file you want to add to C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color (close my computer).

2. "Right click" on your desktop and click "personalize".
3. Bottom left under: "also see" Click on Display
4. Top Left: click "change display settings".
5. Find "advanced settings" click on it
6. Find "color management" tab, click on it.
7. Click on "color management" in middle of tab
8. On Devices tab click add
9. Find the file you added to your C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\color and add the profile you copied.
10. Highlight your file by clicking on it once and click the "set as default profile". Close everything: Viola > and you're done!
Re-boot and windows should load your new file as the default color profile. To check this go back through the above steps (2-8) and verify that your profile shows up as the default.
