Desktop icons stopped working after windows update

Tonight I was working on a report when the Windows Update notification alert came up indicating there were updates to be downloaded and installed. I did this, and then rebooted the computer, as per the install instructions. After the start up, I discovered that none of my desktop shortcuts work anymore. If you right-click on them, you can't even find the target executable. The programs still work, but I now need to go through Windows Explorer and find them in the Program Files directory.
Has anyone seen this before?
