This depends upon where the service loads from.
If it loads from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM for short) key in the registry - then it'll apply to all users
If it loads from the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key (HKCU) in the registry - then it'll only load for the currently logged on user
So, the solution is to locate the key that loads the Theme's service in the HKLM key
Copy it, then delete it from the HKLM structure
Then paste it, in the same path, to the HKCU key
Do this for each profile, except for your own - and you'll have what you want.
I don't recommend messing with the profile stores directly in HKEY_USERS as it's not just a copy of the HKCU key for each user.
BUT...If I recall correctly, the service is launched along with a bunch of other services under an svchost.exe process - so this will complicate matters when you're trying to find and disable it.
