    computer monitor and camera monitor won't be showing the same results, this is for sure.

    and is your computer monitor calibrated?

    if it is not, any correction done on the images will only look good on your computer monitor,

    to judge an images correct exposure is by reading the histogram for non-calibrated monitor, reading the histogram of your camera should able to let you know is your exposure correct or not.

    Spend some time reading through the basics of post processing. First thing: calibrate your monitor, second thing: get an image editor that deserves the name. The sticky thread in Digital Darkroom has a list, some good ones are even for free. Drop M$ photo screw ..
