In print in Photoshop CS4 I'm presented with a page of ICC profiles when I try to select the right profile to use under "Printer Profile". Is there any way of removing the unwanted profiles and just leaving the ones I have set up for the monitor & printer/paper combinations I will be using. I have tried deleting them using explorer but they still appear in PS

Delete what you don't need.
remember to delete unwanted profiles whilst PS is closed and then re-boot. Be careful which ones you delete, however.
It might be safer to save them somewhere just in case.
I have removed the unwanted ones in explorer, Windows>System32>spool>drivers>color, (I have taken the precaution of moving the unwanted profiles to another folder) and rebooted but they are still showing in PS
You do not say which OS you use. If you use Vista look in the Control Panel and you will find "Color Management". This is a use friendly way of managing Colour profiles. For XP, it does not come with this but there used to be a Color Applet you could download from Microsoft which did more or less the same thing. Finally if you use a monitor calibrator, some versions include profile management software.
