Pictures color looks dull but not in CS2...Advice?

Hi, new here to DSLRs. I recently got a K100D with kit lens and the 50-200mm lens. I've been taking some test pics in RAW and loading them to my PC. When I view them in Photoshop CS2, the pictures look correct. But when I open them up in Picasa2 they look very dull like the colors were sucked out. So I saved the RAW (PEF file) to JPG to see if that was causing the problem. Again, when I view the pics in CS2, all is right. But if I open the same pics in any other photo viewer they look dull. Am I just missing something here? Any help would be appreciated.

Okay, I figured it out with a help of a friend. I had my camera set to adobeRGB and when I saved as JPG I had it set to the wrong colorspace. Setting everything to sRGB seems to have done the trick.
