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?

Windows 7 appears twice on the boot menu; resets updates
Hello. I had some trouble a while back and ended up doing a repair install. This has resulted in me having 2 options for Windows 7 on my boot menu. Near as I can tell they are the same, but Windows updates don't "take" on the first one. And if I use the second W7 option, those updates will...
