Started having the same issue as the rest of you (Installed MS malicious software removal tool program and then no internet access).
As per instructions posted in this forum;Went into "control panel", "add/remove program".When the "add/remove program" window pops up make sure to check the "show updates" at the top.So anyway, I went in there and removed "KB951748".
My computer rebooted.Set my sliders in ZoneAlarm to max.Voila!
I got internet access.
Consequences of this action:
The update shield keeps showing up in the system tray.
I can gain access to this forum through IE 7
I can't gain access to this forum through FireFox 3 (mmm... could be a mozilla issue or zonealarm, not sure)
Hope this helps out.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
