I wonder if this is related to my problem: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...=203549&hl=
In the last couple days, .net and c+++ items have been subjects of my problem. This all started after the february 2009 patch tuesday last week.
I further suspect .net as on the Security Now podcast, Steve Gibson mentioned a .net glob of 250 megs was involved in the patch. listen to the first few minutes, and he mentions it, but nothing about the patch breaking anything.
"Then the big mother was a .NET Framework update. And it's 250MB." he says. http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-183.txt
not to dual post, I'll get back to researching my problem, now that I have a desktop back, I need to try other things to fix the side by side error.
