I'm getting a difference in colors between PSE 5 and every other image viewer.  PSE tends to render skys with a slight purple-ish cast and when I save and open the jpeg in Windows viewer the sky has a cyan cast.

I picked up a monitor calibrator and it improved the monitor coloring but didn't get rid of the problem.

After messing around with PSE settings, I changed the Color Settings to "No Color Management" and now the colors match perfectly. But, what exactly does disabling color management do? Will this somehow cause a different problem later? Any ideas what's wrong here?

Workflow is - open sRGB NEF/RAW with ACR and save as a 12 jpeg.

I once had exactly the same problem and it was solved the same way as you solved it. I assume that if the color management is adjusted this way it is optimized for printing your images.

Color management can sometimes be associated with your particular brand of monitor.  In my case I use a Samsung 940N which of course includes screen adjustment 'software' in order to get the best viewable results.  Whenever I open a file in PS it tells me that my file 'has an embedded color management profile' which suggests that the Samsung is adding something to the file so that it displays on screen in accordance with my monitor settings.

I always disable/reject the color management option for each file so that the embedded profile is removed.

It's just happened to me whit some pictures. I'm happy to have made the same thing. I'm using an Acer monitor but I wasn't remember if it was calibrated. It's kind of confusing at the end
