I've applied the new fix and it's worst than ever. Before, I had one pc that gave me the "Computer Monitoring Error". After, every single PC connected to my SBS2011 Essentials gives me this error...
No change for me, still receiving the errors...
I'm seeing a similar error on a new install of SBS 2011 Standard. In this case it's actually the server that is showing the error and says that it was restarted. The error is a week old now and the server has since been restarted several times.
