magenta cast in printing photos

    I am having a problem with printing pictures from files on my computer.
    When I scan pictures directly to my photo printer, they come out great.
    When I save the photos to the computer and then print them I get a megenta cast (reddish hue) on the entire photo, although the quality is still great.
    On screen, before I print the photo, it looks great also.
    It has been suggested that I configure the computer so it prints colors properly from the computer. Even though the pictures look great, apparently the image information being sent to my printer includes the magenta hue. Can anybody tell me how to correct this problem.
    I am running a Dell XPS at 3.4 gighz, its about 1 month old.
    I am using an Epson 3170 Photo Scanner and an Epson Photo 785EPX printer.
    For software I am running XP Professional and the photo programs are:
    Photoshop 7, PhotoSuite 7 Platinum and Photoshop Elements 2.0. All of the programs will present the photo in great color and clarity, and they all print with the megenta cast in the photo.
    Any suggestions to eliminate this problem would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
