    Unhappy Windows Update problems, please help

    I just got the latest windows updates and now my browser will not connect to any webpages. I've tried several sites, yahoo,microsoft,google, etc. However my AOL browser still works. But I dont like to use the aol browser, how can I get my browser IE 5 to work correctly again? Please help, I'm desperate. Thanks.

    i have the same problem occasionally, are you running a firewall?
    My browser will not connect to any website unless my firewall is active. I dont know whether this is a security feature or a bug.

    it is kinda handy though - it forces me to switch my firewall on which is for my protection really. I dont see how the windows update could do that though, i had no troubles with it. Which parts did you d/l?

    Windows update stores a backup of your old IE I'm not
    sure how to restore it though.

    Ive got Win2K, and whenever I download a service pack, there is an add/remove entry in the control panel. Though I have never tried it, you may be able to restore your old setup by uninstalling the update.

    I must say though that I am not speaking from experience, so I cant say I am 100% sure here.
