Right click on the desktop, click Personalise, then select an aero theme (something other than high contrast theme).

If you press thee keys again does it not revert back... it can take a couple of seconds?

Ok, try this (provided you are allowed to).

1. Open the Make the computer easier to see page by clicking Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Ease of Access, clicking Ease of Access Center, and then clicking Make the computer easier to see.

2. Under High Contrast, uncheck all the options under “High contrast”.
