Have you tried the following:
  1. Right-click an empty spot on your desktop, select "Personalize"
  2. Click "Windows Color and Appearance"
  3. Click "Open classic appearance properties for more color options"
  4. Select a "Color scheme" other than one of the "High Contrast" items...
  5. Click OK
If that didn't help, then if your display driver has added an extension to the desktop right-click menu, then you might want to try that route to see if perhaps your display driver is applying it's own "High Contrast" settings.
