Windows 8: how to disable Intel contrast enhancement?

Windows changes the contrast curve of my screen based on its contents at any given time. This poses a problem as I work in the photographic industry and I use quite a lot of Adobe products (color-critical work).


1. I've gone through all the power options available in Windows and made sure "adaptive brightness" is disabled.


2. I've disabled the Sensor Monitoring Service in services.msc.


3. I've disabled "contrast enhancement" in the Intel Graphics and Media control panel.


4. I've even uninstalled the Intel graphics drivers, but of course they keep coming back.


How do I disable this? The opinion around the 'net seems to be that this is a Windows 8 bug. Has anyone gotten rid of it by upgrading to 8.1?


Cheers ...!
