WHOOPS! Latest Microsoft XP Security Update Stopped Our Internet Access

After applying the latest Windows XP updates from Tuesday, 7/8/08, we've had reports of problems with connecting to the Internet. In our offices we had to make firewall setting changes so that our Internet and email would work again. We use ZoneAlarm and had to change the Firewall setting for the Internet Zone Security from High to Medium to be able to communicate again with the outside world.

Of course, our shipping system could not be used until its Internet connection was restored. Not a good thing!

Watch out for this issue with your security software when you apply this month's Windows XP updates.
