ArcView 9.3 - Trouble with colors in exported PDF from ArcView

I have trouble when exporting to an .mxd project to PDF with colors. As you can see in the screenshot attached, the same map project is brighter and crispier and the left, what I used to output. The same project exported now, as it appears on the right, has all the colors bleached and looks really ugly to me.

Is there any setting, color profiles, I could change to export to PDF in ArcView? Or do the settings from Windows could interfece when trying to export?

I tweaked color profiles some time ago on my machine in order to better match colors from the plotter to my monitors, with ICC profiles and so on... It never worked as I expected but even worse, it now bleaches my PDF Exports!!!

Any help would be appreciated
