I just received a Microsoft Update and after installing it needed to restart. After restarting I could not connect to the Internet. I went into Add/Remove Programs and deleted the updates and now I can connect. Is anyone else having this problem?

There were two actually. I am not sure which did what so I deleted them both. They are:

Security Update Windows XP (KB951748)
Update for Windows XP (KB951978)

That patch was meant to fix DNS spoofing and it changed some files that ZoneAlarm didn't like apparently.

Try a clean re-install of ZoneAlarm after updating if you want to re-apply the MS patch.

Actually.. I just went and checked out the ZoneAlarm forum and someone else has tried that with no luck. Seems that the only work around is to run ZA at medium security, or don't update. Sorry man.

I just won't update then. I think that's pretty crazy Microsoft sends out an update that messes your computer up. And it's ma'am.

D'oh. Girls, on my internets, using ZoneAlarm? What a crazy world this has become...

I heard a lot of chatter about XP SP3 causing all kinds of problems as well like random reboots and crashes. Its just how they roll.
