SYMPTOMS

When you develop a Web page, you use a Image Color Management (ICM) profile for the ICMFilter filter. This filter improves the appearance of specific content in the Web page. However, when you view the Web page in Internet Explorer 7, the ICMFilter filter does not work. Therefore, the content color does not appear as expected.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of an error in the Dxtmsft.dll file. Because of this error, Internet Explorer 7 cannot find the ICM profile.
