Try to change it to Combine Shapes. 
Please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels etc. visible.

I'm having the same issue. I went into the Path tool and took it off the Subtract Front Shape. Yet as i continue to make other shapes it keeps reverting to SFS. This problem started randomly a week ago and wont go away.

That sounds like you might have a corrupt preferences file. Try deleting your preferences (after making sure you've backed up any presets/actions you haven't already saved to your hard drive), and see if this random problem doesn't go away.
