Turn off high contrast mode

I accidentally pressed shift+alt and printscn it enabled high contrast mode.

I need to turn off High Contrast via the Registry because a GPO is preventing us from turning it off.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am confused. If your machine is locked down, the registry will not be accessible. If not locked down, turn off the GPO temporarily.  Ask your system administrator to help.

Fiddling with the registry is death to computers. EE is littered with such posts.
