WM/Wallpaper is a Word macro virus.
Beside replication, the virus activates its payload on every 31th day of each month. At this time, it attempts to replace the Windows desktop's wallpaper with a picture of a skull. This picture is saved to "c:\windows\temp\sk2.bmp".
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
