UPDATE: PROBLEM SOLVED

This is apparently a known issue:

Evidently the problem comes along when you use desktop manager software like Earthview. I had recently started using Nvidia nView desktop manager. They seem to get into conflicts with Windows 7's own theme software and create a new unsaved theme upon startup whether you want them to or not. I got rid of nView and the problem went away.

Moral: don't use 3rd party desktop managers with Windows 7.
