Windows 7: Computer automatically switches to the high contrast option on login

Computer automatically switches to the high contrast option on login

My computer has recently started switching to high contrast between colours when I log in. This has never happened before and I have checked the accessibility options and it is set to off. A few days ago I was messing around with accessibility, but I put everything back to the way it was originally (or so I thought). Anyway, I would really like some help on fixing this issue, as it is interfering with many of my programs.

I have also checked on a standard account and it works fine. Help!

may be restoring the particular setting may work for the particular power plan you are using
