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.

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.
