Microsoft's update overnight made it so anyone using Zone Alarm can't access the net. 9.9
Zone Alarm people recommend you uninstall the Windows patch, but for me lowering Zone Alarm's internet security from high to medium fixed it. (I don't like leaving it lower than high, but for now I'll leave it that way...)
Comcast (who I mistakenly called first) recommended leaving Zone Alarm totally off, but gah. No fire wall protection? Thanks, but no.
