MS Security Update prevents internet access!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here's the story:

     

    My Automatic Updates downloaded and installed an update which required restarting the computer. After the restart the internet connection is prevented.

     

      I did a system restore to the day before and all was well until the Automatic Updates installed the update again. Then I lose the connection again. I did another system restore and all was well again until the Automatic Updates installed the update again. It is update KB958644. I am currently running on the previous day's system but the computer keeps telling my to restart for the update to take effect but if I do that then I will lose internet connection until I do another system restore.

      I am unable to go to the Microsoft Update page and because I haven't installed the update yet it won't let me access my update History or search for help.

     

    How do I get out of this?
