Why does the same image (e.g. the colors) look different in other viewers?

Why does the same image (e.g. the colors) look different in other viewers, e.g. SmartStoneViewer, HoneyView, IrfanView, etc.?

And which view / colors, etc. is the correct one?

Perhaps your file has a ICC profile, do you have enabled settings>General>Icc>Use icc...

And if it had, what would it mean?

No, not until now, now I have this:
What does it do? After activating will the display of the images be adapted to that new profile?

And if I want a "correct" (as far as possible) display, should I use that option? It says there it is slower, and it is slow enough already here.

if the file has an ICC profile, it must be converted to sRGB profile

After activating will the display of all images be adapted to that new profile? Or only when showing them full view mode?

All images with an embedded profile will be adapted everywhere
Some others viewers use it as default
