PSP xi, nr, and ca

Hi all...been lurking for a bit as I learn more about my month old k110d. Thanks for all the tips I've picked up along the way!

But now that I've decided to shoot exclusively in RAW, I'm finding some strange effects at times with my pics after developing them with Paint Shop Pro XI (not saying PSP is the reason, cuz I don't know if it might be user error). In high contrast situations I'm seeing some serious CA on the edges of things. could it be the lens that I was using (I think it was an m series 50mm f1.7)?

Also, if I'm using the sharpening and noise reduction features of this program, am I adding "problems" to my pictures? Generally, I've liked the result, but on occasion I think NR is taking away too much detail, and using the sharpening too much or without enough NR magnifies flaws excessively or even changes texture into flaws. Am I seeing/ interpreting this right?

Here's a pic w/ lots of CA... I should also mention my original was very underexposed (at least the foreground) and used lots of brightness and shadow reducing controls in the processing.
