Storefront Skin Does not Render Properly

When attempting to access the storefront front end, the page loads but the skin does not display properly.  Images are not shown, tokens are out of place, styles aren't applied, etc.

This can be caused by having a default page theme set in IIS.

Note:  Back up your site's web.config file before following these steps, as IIS will sometimes edit that file and break the storefront.

In IIS, access the site's properties and on the ASP.NET tab, click Edit Configuration.  On the Application tab, clear out anything in the Page Theme Default field.  Apply the settings changes and refresh the site.
