KB942615 IE7.00 security updates, disables Internet browsing
By installing this update you give extreme security to your Internet browser.
This update will completely stop Internet Explorer , and you won't have to
be worry about anything. LOL
Once I unstalled it I got my internet back.

Re: KB942615 IE7.00 security updates, disables Internet browsing
X-post to IE General

Error message after you install a Windows Internet Explorer 7 update from
Windows Update or from Microsoft Update: "Webpage cannot be displayed":
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942818

Assuming 942615 is installed and if tweaking your third-party firewall's
settings don't help, try the following:

1. Disable your anti-virus application, any real-time protection provided by
an anti-spyware application (except for Windows Defender; includes Spybot
Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, AVG AS guard.exe, etc.), disable any
third-party firewall AND enable the Windows Firewall.

NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,
browsing; reading email; chatting) except #4 below until your anti-virus
application has been re-enabled! If you're running ZA Free firewall, you
may need to uninstall it instead of disabling it.

2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (KB942615)"
via Add/Remove Programs (make sure Show Updates box is checked at top right)
and reboot.

3. Re-do #1 above.

4. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and install any Critical Updates
offered. If "Root Certificates" update is listed in the Optional Updates
category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of IE7's
additional security.

5. Reboot > Make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and, if
applicable, disable the Windows Firewall and enable your third-party
firewall.

Re: KB942615 IE7.00 security updates, disables Internet browsing
I have the same problem. No internet at all (IE, Outlook, etc) after
installing the 8 or so windows updates earlier in the week. I restored my
system to the point prior to installing windows updates and everything was
back to normal.

I read on here that it may be due to the IE7 update so I reinstalled the
updates minus the IE update. Afterwards, IE worked fine but Outlook couldn't
access the internet. Obviously there is another update that is doing the
same thing to Outlook settings. I tried disabling Symantec corporate edition
antivirus, but this did not help. I do not have any other 3rd party firewall
on my system. I am able to access LAN drives and other computer on my local
network.

I have Vista premium, and office enterprise 2007.

I find it hard to believe MS would put forth this update knowing it doesn't
work with other 3rd party software. I'm reading all over the internet about
people diagnosing their systems and then not installing the patches due to
this same problem. I can't even imagine what some computer illiterate people
are going through right now.

I guess if they want the ultimate in security for their software, the
ultimate solution is to totally shut down internet access
