SOLVED - AMD Catalyst's Multi-Desktop Option
I re-created myself making a new user in Windows 8 and noticed that Win8 remembered my theme choice when I rebooted. BUT I had not loaded my programs and settings, so I tried adding them and testing as I went. I found the BUG. The Culprit was AMD's Catalyst's "Vision Engine Control Centre" and the Multi-Desktop option that is part of the HydraVision component. When Enabled this option allows you to have up to nine desktops, but when enabled Win8 does not remember your Theme setting and reverts to the default Daisy.
I didn't use the multi-desktop option so disabling is no loss for me. I did post a message on AMD's forum to see if this is a known bug.
What a challenge to find that one misplaced check mark in among all the settings.
