Game causing my colors (Gamma?) to go darker

So I've noticed for the past month or so that when I play World of Warships my colors all get darker, and this effect lasts until I reboot my computer. I was wondering if anyone else was noticing/having this happen to them as well, and if there was a fix known for it aside from the aforementioned reboot. And by darker it's not insignificant, either. The dark blue of the forum header for example becomes indistinguishable from the black of the Wargaming bar at the top of the page. For reference my specs are as follows-
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Intel Core i5 4460 @ 3.20Ghz
8GB DDR3
GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB with most recent drivers from nVidia
2TB Hitachi HDD

My current monitor is a Vizio M221NV 21" LED TV but the same thing happens on the other two monitors I've used.
Game settings are as follows-

So. Any help figuring this out would be appreciated.

Had same problem in windows 10. I fixed it by turning off "Windows auto adjusting dysplay lighting" in display settings. It's Windows adjusting screen brightness by sensing your room lighting. Turn it off, fixed it for me.

Don't have that setting under display, and the setting under advanced power settings/display has been off since I set up my power profile whenever I upgraded to Windows 10.

It's the "change brightness automatically when lighting changes" box that I un-checked that fixed it for me.

Thanks for the link, @VonSmallHausenn. I'll look into this more in-depth tomorrow when I play WoWS again, but I'll keep this updated.

So. After doing the thing mentioned with going to the nVidia control panel and changing the display settings to use nVidia's settings rather than the application settings, it appears to be fixed. Thanks again for the help @VonSmallHausenn.
