After installing the optional update KB2670838, IE/FF/MSN instantly crash at starting up those applications. I've done some system restores and installed this update twice to be sure that this is the update that is causing this.

Anyone else experiencing this problem? And did you fixed it while having KB2670838 installed? If so, how?

Thanks in advance!

P.s. chrome doesn't crash. Haven't tried other browsers. But it seems that this is affecting browsers.

EDIT: Couldn't add 64-bit as a tag, because of the 5 tag limit.
