When Color Managed Display is turned on in Windows?

What happens when "Color Managed Display" is turned on in Windows? (and what about try to use system monitor profile checkbox?)

I have a software-corrected sRGB-gamma .icc profile loaded in Windows 7. So the monitor displays more or less correct colors and relatively fine intensity by default.

So should I define the same monitor profile in GIMP? When the colors are already correct? If it adds to the image only difference of the mentioned profile with OS-managed profile? so the correction is zero?

I guess, If GIMP calculates difference of the mentioned profile with sRGB, then probably colors should go out of control?

So should I set there my real monitor's profile, or sRGB, when the color is managed by Windows?

Does having the monitor profile on/off in either of Gimp / MS system affect the way out-of-gamut colors are shown?

Otherwise, if there is no difference I would keep the monitor icm enabled in Gimp (just on the basic of no-visible-difference).

Want a better answer? Best ask on https://discuss.pixls.us/

As I said, the profile is loaded in Windows 7 for correcting the monitor. And yes, it affects the output significantly. So, I afraid of double correction, because the exact mechanism is not explained in terms of source1, source2->operation->output.
