Anyone had a problem with Windows XP updates

Tonight I switched my PC on and a load of startup programs failed to start, my homepage was reset to Yahoo and the majority of my desktop icons/shortcuts were gone though the programs all appeared to be there and my desktop was set to a different resolution. As well as my favourite websites had vanished.
Now the only thing I did yesterday was download the latest XP updates.
I have used system restore and gone back to Friday and all is well but has anyone else had this problem? Was it the windows updates that actually did this?

PS I have just tried the windows update website and there are 13 updates there which further makes me think one or more of the updates has caused the problem.

Thanks for that but I only downloaded the ones for windows, I too have had problems caused by Microsoft updates for hardware
