I had similar problems when I shifted from 2.4 to 2.5 in October 2006.
I got error messages from both YaP and dvipdfm -- as well as strange
MiKTeX 2.5+ uses "mgs" (MiKTeX Ghostscript) rather than a locally installed
Ghostscript and the included fontmap files (in at least early versions)
included a fontmap.miktex which referred to locations for various fonts
which were not included in the initial installation of 2.5+.
Most of my problems were resolved by using the package manager to install
times, helvetica, ... and any other font available. In particular, the
directory structure for the urw fonts was changed and most applications
which produce your postscript will need helvetica, etc
