Auto Color makes me see RED

Hi

Can anyone tell me why when I select Auto Color it turns my image bright red. This happens when I select the Auto Color option from the Image menu, from the curves dialog, and when I use the grey dropper from the curves dialog box.
It has happened with a number of different images. I'm using PS5

Check and see what your auto options are set up as.

It should look something like the attached. Black, grey and white. My guess is that you have a red somewhere in there
