As I often warn people, printing from the local mega-store mini-lab results in lower quality prints. Few of these budget establishments monitor their equipment, calibrate it for accurate color, and change the chemicals/supplies during the manufacturer-suggested life cycle.

Of course, sometimes you don't need top-end quality for 4x6's that are put in a scrapbook or given away to friends/family for free. At that point, you need to just minimize the damages. While I still suggest the online options, sometimes the locals can work with you.

the easiest way to install a profile in Windows XP is to right click on the profile in Windows Explorer and select "install profile". Windows copies the profile to the correct directory automatically.
.... and if that doesn't work, there are more troubleshooting instructions on the page. Also information for other operating systems.
