Where do we find the color correction option to change?

I went into windows display settings -> settings tab -> advanced -> GeForce 6800GT tab -> Performance & Quality Settings

I then selected the view Advanced settings and see that there is a color profile setting, however there is no value and it doesn't seem to allow me to change it.

Under the GeForce whatever tab, click "Color Correction"... NOT "Performance & Quality Settings"

Read his instructions again ;/ It worked for me, thank you! :D
