iFilter Not Working After Applying Microsoft Update

After applying any Microsoft Update, in this case we were applying the February Cumulative patches for WSS and SharePoint, that your Foxit PDF IFilter has stopped working. I'll wait while you go perform a search and notice you are not getting the expected results. You can even build the index and notice that it's building in record time!

Well, the resolution for this is quite simple. First get your install documentation that you originally used to install Foxit PDF IFilter and make sure you note the way that your IFilter is currently configured. Now, all you need to do is uninstall the Foxit PDF IFilter and reinstall. If you attempt to just reinstall/repair you will get error messages.
