Windows 7: Domain user defaulting to basic theme

Domain user defaulting to basic theme

Currently upgrading all the computers to windows 7 but have found out just one user is having issues with the theme defaulting to the basic. However, when logging in as myself or as local admin it goes back to Aero theme. It is only for this one user, which is really strange.

I have checked the GPO, which is all fine and is pointing to use the aero theme.
Have gone to the performance options in my computer and all the check boxes are checked.

When going to the personalization screen, all the theme options are grayed out.
Me and another colleague are baffled and running out of ideas.
Has anyone encountered this or any ideas to fix it.
