Latest Microsoft Patches causing wide spread problems.

Ever since the security updates rolled out by microsoft this week i’ve been getting wide spread reports of problems on my site and other sites.

When users attempt to reply to a message,  or use the search on my site  both of which are forms IE  crashes and exits.    I’ve talked to other dating site owners and the same thing is happening there.   Anyone know whats going on?  I assume the problem only effects a small fraction of 1%  but when you’ve got hundreds of thousands of users that sure adds up fast.

I’ve got a few people complaining in my forums and a lot more via email.

Looks like you have to reapply SP1  and the problem goes away?  I just wish I knew what the exact problem was.
