My System Specs

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.

Wow!!! Great catch!

Hopefully other folks in the same boat will see this and their troubles will be over.
