Monitor Calibration - but do it often. There are loads of tools to do it Spyder, Huey.... but these cost

But something free and seems to work pretty well is here

If you have Adobe software, check your control panel as you may have Adobe Gamma in there. Use that to adjust your calibration.

The only suggestion I can give to have a perfect and super beautiful looking images is to switch to MAC.
I did just that a month ago and couldn't be more happier.
Totally different experience, absolutely new wonderful world of MAC.
Macs is what real computer should be - perfect, people friendly, brilliant design. No ugly box, no noise. It's so quite, you don't hear a sound.
When I look at the same image on PC and then on MAC....it's like day and night!
On MAC it looks stunning, you see ALL the true colors.
I highly highly recommend everyone with PC and wants to start enjoying the real computer, get iMAC or MAC TODAY!
You'll be glad and much more happier.

As a mac owner i can agree with the above comment, but the new imacs are too bright even at minimum settings, using the spyder and software called coloreyes was needed to attack the graphic card directly to get the brightness down to 140cd^2 brightness luminance, which is about the amount you will find the pros set their monitors to.

Samsung make nice monitors for the pc, i worked happily with dual screens on the pc before switching to the mac.

Many people are happy calibrating using adobe's included calibrator, and i used it for a while but realised you cant beat hardware calibration. On the other hand it depends how critical you are with your colours and brightness i guess.

Hey Ric- tell me more about getting the iMac screen down a bit in brightness! I have the colour just fine with the Pantone Huey, but agree that it is still very bright.
I agree with Zalman and you though- I have been using Mac for 15 years now and they are great for photography,

I use coloreyes
http://www.integrated-color.com/
which is software that replaces the software that your calibration hardware uses. it is a proffesional piece of kit and reflected in the price which i think is about 90ukp.
To be honest, without it, i wouldnt be able to recreate my images to look satisfactory, and every image edited and produced over a 4 year period on Eizo monitors would be wasted. After using coloreyes, with the spyder, my calibration was to similar standards as used by katrin eismann, scott kelby, martin evening, sean duggan etc etc etc ( Proffesional photoshop teachers, authors etc).
And as i spend 1000 on a mac, i think the cost of the software was well worth the investment.
Whether it is right for yoou is something only you can decide. i know they supply a demo to test it out but you should check for compatibility with your hardware calibrator first.
