Windows 7: System resets things after MS updates

System resets things after MS updates

I have noticed that some things keep getting reset after some MS updates are performed.
Specifically I have my desktop background set to do a slide show of the wallpaper, every so often after an upgrade this is reset to no longer do the slide show, I must activate it again.
Another item is that in folder options i prefer to have each folder open in a new window, this has been turned off and I need to go back on turn it on again and again.

Has anyone else noticed these annoyances?
