Windows 7 Photo Viewer crushes the shadows...(img)

I know it is suppose to be managed but unless there is a way to tweak it the shadows are crushed. Black and white images are horrible.

You need to download my image and view in Photoshop to get a true screen shot view but you can still see the problem with window viewer (middle).

Notice the crushed blacks and the hard lines between luminosities. These screen shots were Windows Photo Viewer and the viewer in the folder.
