Steve Gibson is a retard.  Actually, Steve Gibson is less than a
retard.  What kind of so called expert reccomends a third party patch?

Oh wait.. the same expert that bitched about a fantasy sockets issue....

This is incorrect.  Michael Hennessy has reported problems on the
patch-management mailing list:

I took the SANS advice and de-registered the dll, and also installed
Ilfak Guilfanov's "temporary patch" on 1 win2k machine and 6 XP
machines today.

All fine except for one of the XP machines - wouldn't run IE without
gpf'ing until I uninstalled the patch - but leaving the dll
de-registered didn't seem to cause any grief anywhere, so far.

FWIW, the iexplore crashes left this in the event log:

Event ID 4097, source : drwatson The application, C:\Program
Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe, generated an application error
The error occurred on 01/02/2006 @ 14:49:49.709 The exception
generated was c0000005 at address 0068E3BA (<nosymbols>)

I suspect that the patch conflicts with an application that is
specific to this machine.
