I've been hearing some reports that applying the new IE security patch can create some changes that make Javascript misfire. In particular, one developer told me that javascript was sometimes disabled by the recent MS patch and had to be re-enabled manually. He said this has resulted in user complaints on his client sites.

I've seen nothing like this so far. Has anyone else?

I've installed the last several patches from MS and my JS settings have not changed. I'm using IE6 stand alone version with ME.

Hello tedster! I too have not seen any problems with the latest patches from MS. I'm running Win98 and IE 6.0.2600.0000.
