desktop wallpaper problem after installing KB832483

    For the last few days when rebooting my computer, the desktop
    wallpaper has been disappearing. I can go into Desktop Properties
    and reselect an image to use (I've been using bitmap ones, not jpg),
    and then it displays fine again until I reboot. After rebooting,
    the background is blank again.

    I've checked my registry, and it seems the item for
    My Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/ControlPanel/Desktop/Wallpaper
    is being deleted somehow (after rebooting, the "Wallpaper" item
    doesn't show up at all; it's not just blanked out such as when
    you specifically select "None" as the background image).

    I've got Windows 2000 Professional. It seems this has been
    happening since Windows Update installed the security update for
    KB832483. There didn't seem to be any problems during that install.

    I've read several posts about people having problems with
    KB832483, but none with this symptom. Has anyone else had this
    problem? Or know how to fix it?
