button no longer fires - help!

P: n/a
I have a page on a customer's site -, c#, hosted on windows 2003.
There's a server-side button on the page which updates a value in a sql
database. This has worked fine for months, but mysteriously stopped working
about 10 days ago. It still works fine in my local dev environment (win xp),
and reposting the code doesn't do any good. I even tried deleting the button
and recreating it. I came up with a work around - using a linkbutton (using
the same codebehind function) to execute the database query. I asked the
hosting provider if they did anything recently to the server, and they claim
they only installed a few updates from windowsupdate.

I just noticed my own web site hosted from them has the same problem with my
contact form. My contact form has a button which uses cdo to send the
results of the form to an email address. This also worked fine up until 10
days ago.

Any ideas??? Has anybody encountered similar problems?? I'm kind of at a
loss at this point... TIA

The c# code for my page ( is below if
it helps. Thanks!
