    I have had several different reports of problems with MS04-032. There
    definitely is a problem with that patch when applied to systems which
    are running the Intel Ultra ATA IDE (thanks Stuart Hersh) driver. Intel
    have replaced that driver with the Intel Application Accelerator, but
    Intel also state that the driver is not absolutely required.

    If there is any commonality amongst the other reports, its that there
    appears to be issues with older kernel-mode drivers and the patch. The
    reports vary from outright BSODs, to memory errors, to applications not
    functioning. With the exception of the Ultra ATA IDE driver, there are
    insufficient other reports to state drivers with certainty.

    If you encounter a boot problem, boot into Safe Mode and then use
    Add/Remove programs to remove MS04-032. Reboot and upgrade your
    driver(s). Andrew Cohen pointed out that MBSA states that if MS04-032 is
    removed and re-applied, then MS04-031 has to also be re-installed.

    Cheers,
