Problem with color profile in XP

I apologize if this isn't the right forum to post this question but I remembered that I got the best answers to my questions in this forum in the past.

When I open a picture in Photoshop, I get an error messages saying, "The monitor profile 'Samsung Natural Color Pro 1.0 ICM' appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software."

I ran the calibration software again but I still get the message.

From time to time, I have had this problem in the past and the solution that always worked for me was to go to Display Properties/Color Management and remove my monitor profile from the list. It worked every time whether I actually ran my monitor calibration again or not but I can't delete that profile now. When I try to remove it, I get an error message saying, "An errro occurred while disassociating SM223BW.ICM" (That's the profile for my Samsung monitor.)

(Since first posting the above paragraph, I went into device manager and deleted the Monitor driver. I was then able to remove it from Color Management. The error then went away in Photoshop but the next time I booted up, the profile was back and so was the error message.

I should also mention that I just reinstalled XP a couple days ago to fix a non-related problem. Everything is running fine now but I just can't seem to get rid of this profile error.

How can I fix this problem? :)
