Desktop theme changes at random times


Win XP SP3, Athlon 64 X2:

I have my desktop theme set to "Windows Classic (modified)". Every now and then when I reboot, the theme changes back to the standard Win XP.

Not a really big problem, a few clicks and resetting the desktop photo and I'm back to normal. It's not a big problem but it is an indication that something isn't working right.

However, I'm wondering why this is happening and if there is anything that I can do to fix it.

As I said earlier, it doesn't happen with every reboot. If it did, it would be easier to troubleshoot.

Thank.

Fixing intermitten issues is tough....People could suggest several things and it could be a while before you know if the ideas worked or not..

Sure wouldn't hurt to create a log to make note of what you were doing before you get the different theme.
