Does anyone know of any current windows updates that will cause exchange 2010 to crash/stop working on a SBS 2011 server?  I know there were several previously.  
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Rollup 8 was released and replaced a few days later. That is the only one that I am aware of that causes problems. Check the installation date of Exchange 2010 SP3 rollup 8 - if it is before 15th December then you have the old one. Uninstall, reboot the server. You should then be offered the replacement.

So the .NET updates are ok now?  I know those were bad before.  All the rest of the security updates are fine?

I have never had a problem with netframework updates. So being bad before - not in my experience. I have four or five SBS 2011 servers and they are fine. I patch, I reboot.

Netframework update issues are usually third party related.

Ok, so just to verify, look out for the Exchange 2010 sp 3 rollup 8 update but other than that everything else is ok?

SP3 RU8 v2 is fine. And addresses a significant security issue. I'd not skip it now.
