Most likely a broken monitor profile. Windows "Photos" is not color managed and doesn't use the profile.

 

As a temporary fix, replace your current profile with sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and relaunch PS/Lr (the profile is loaded at application startup). The proper way to deal with it is to use a calibrator to make a new profile, but if you don't have one, sRGB should be close enough for non-critical work.

It's important to distinguish between document profiles, which are handled in application color settings, and the monitor profile, which is handled by the operating system.

 

Photoshop and Lightroom have no influence over the monitor profile. They just have to use whatever they get from the operating system.
