Latest .NET security update breaks SharePoint 2010 datasheet view

Latest Microsoft Update Patches breaks the Datasheet View on #SP2010 Confirmed on 2 clients now.. (so it was working but after running windows update, it was not working anymore). It now returns "The selected cells are read-only" when trying to edit a field in the Datasheet view. (Any field, all which were previously editable).


DataSheet view gives "column is read-only" after one of these updates is installed on win7 + office 2010 client:

Please let me know if you run into similar problems or how to notify Microsoft about this.  I did had to install the 2007 Office System Drives: Data Connectivity components to regain the Datasheet functionality in the first place:

(re-install of this tool does not regain functionality)
