Event ID 55 after Windows UPdates on Win Server 2003

A client of mine calls once a month saying that their server has crashed, and requires a hard reboot. (PowerEdge 2950, RAID 1)  I took a look in the event log and I noticed event id 55 being generated about once a month.  

Event Type: Error
Event Source: NTFS
Event ID: 55
The file system structure on disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume "Drive_letter:"

I looked at the dates for the past 2 months.... 2/11 and 3/11... both of these are the day after Microsoft puts out the latest updates.  I'm assuming the server is hanging right after the update, and cannot reboot itself...   a normal reboot does not generate this message.

any ideas? here is the chkdsk result:

dstewartjr - that would be a last resort...  Microsoft even says that more testing may need to be done on this particular hotfix.  I would rather not risk this since this is a production machine.

 This error only appears after a Windows update reboot.  I disabled automatic updates temporarily. Any other ideas? Thanks,

I object to this question being closed in this fashion, the hotfix is the correct answer for this question whether it is liked or not.
