Internet Explorer Version 8 and .Net components in clientside web applications

Internet Explorer version 6 & 7 did not have this limitation so applications may break after Internet Explorer 8 is installed.

 

Here's the Microsoft Knowledgebase article that describes the change and how to work around it.
