Desktop reverts back to XP

Hi Folks:

I hope this is understandable . . . .

I can not seem to get my desktop to "stay" on the Windows Classic theme - it keeps reverting back to Microsoft's XP blue sky and green hill.  

I'm guessing this is a registry issue, but I have no idea where to look.

Machine has brand new SATA-III hard disk and mobo - this was the same phenomena is saw before the machine died

Anybody have any thoughts??
