We have identified an issue with the recent MS03-32 Security Update for Internet Explorer security patch and ASP.NET V1.0 running on Windows XP. This patch can be installed manually or by obtaining recent critical updates from the Windows Update site.
The symptom of this issue is that after installing the patch, all requests to ASP.NET result in an error message saying "Server Application Unavailable".
This issue only impacts installations running ASP.NET V1.0 on Windows XP Professional. It *does not* impact machines running Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003. It also *does not* impact machines running Windows XP with ASP.NET v1.1 installed.
We are working hard on a permanent solution for this issue. In the meantime, you can visit the below page to learn about the problem as well as a safe workaround you can apply immediately to fix the issue:
Included on the page with the details is a link to a new forum dedicated to the problem (http://www.asp.net/Forums/ShowForum.aspx?tabindex=1&ForumID=128). Please post any questions or issues you run into with this issue in this forum -- we on the ASP.NET team will be actively monitoring these posts and will be able to provide technical help to hopefully address them.
Many apologies for the inconvenience that this has caused. We'll post additional information as it becomes available.
In one of Vishal's post he tries to reply to a question that has appeared many times in CNUG forums.
How to not go to the top of the page when a postback happens? Well most people recommed the use of SmartNavigation, but there are documented negatives to it. So I would really recomend a way that was talked about by Scott Gu in one of his ASP.NET Tips and Tricks session in TechEd. Incidently, I had also talked about this in one of the CNUG meets about ASP.NET and other tips.
The trick is to use the "onscroll" event to track the current position and generate client side script to go back to that position on postback. The current position is stored in a hidden variable.
Private Sub RetainScrollPosition()
