    This recent update causes my Internet Explorer to not work at all. All I
    get is the usually error message screen you get if you have no internet
    connection. Internet connection is good and other programs (such as Outlook
    Express) can access the internet. The update also causes my computer to work
    at about 1/10th speed (just fast enough that you almost think the computer
    is absolutely frozen but then it performs a tiny bit) after I attempt to
    launch IE.. Anyone have suggestions? I didn't find anything on MS website.
    I used system restore to get the computer and IE to work again. But I don't
    like the idea of just ignoring an update.

    Windows XP home on a 2 year old Dell wit IE 7 (all prior updates used).
    Appears clear of malware, currently using Trend Micro PC-cillin, Spybot
    Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware.

    Forget the update, and start using a browser that doesn't require a
    security patch each week

    The update fixes another buffer overflow

    It's mostly buffer overflows with MS...

    "Bad Programming

    Buffer overflow results from a well-known, easily understood
    programming error. If a program doesn't check for overflow on each
    character and stop accepting data when its buffer is filled, a
    potential buffer overflow is waiting to happen. However, such checking
    has been regarded as unproductive overhead",10801,82920,00.html

    Have a look at task manager (ctrl alt delete) look under the processes tab
    and see if the cpu is being used at 100%

    If it is highlight and "end process" and report back if the computer now
    runs normally

    pcscnsvr.exe seemed to be the resource hog. Ending that helped overall. It
    didn't get IE7 working again though. I'm not sure pcscnsvr.exe and the
    problem are related. The idea of using a different browser may have merit
    but I've used Mozilla in the past and didn't like it. Besides I am looking
    for a cure, not a work around. Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks.

    pcscnsvr.exe appears to the resource problem, but not the IE7 problem. It
    is a Trend Micro issue. PC-Cillin and SPybot conflict.

    Still looking for suggestions re: Security update and IE& crashing.

    I had thought you fixed the problem:

    Use Process explorer to find the cause of your resource problem.

    Click on the CPU graph to expand, holding your mouse over the line
    will tell you what program is taking up all the CPU.

    Double clicking on the process will give more info.

    If you really want to put some time into this use Process Monitor use the filters to only monitor IE - start
    by searching for faultrep.dll, it starts the error reporting, look
    above it for problems (faultrep.dll search doesn't always work).

    First time I used IE was in Win95, I went to and saw
    what ActiveX was capable of; Second time I used IE was to download
    Netscape (no ActiveX).

    I have never really used IE since, and it has to ask to get past the

    Give a try, anything but IE is just safe hex.

    Pennywise has answered your question better than I can. The only thing I can
    suggest is you run IE without add ons (system tools) and see if that makes
    any difference. I came across this info from microsoft if you have a problem
    with this security update..would be worth a read
