About 5 days ago I took the MS updates for XP Home and Pro on two PC's. Since then I have not been able to get internet access from a browser (FireFox, IE, Opera). Email (Thunderbird) is okay but not a browser from either PC. The work around on both has been to set program control to OFF.
This seems to be similar to a security update issue from exactly two years ago:
