No internet access after windows update
After installing and rebooting an automatically downloaded windows update, my
win2000 computer will no longer access the internet. It will access other
computers on my peer-to-peer network, and those computers can access the
internet.

Is Zone Alarm installed ? -

Workaround to Sudden Loss of Internet Access Problem

Best security practice would behoove you to update to the latest version
of ZA or, even BETTER, uninstall ZA and get a firewall that *protects*
the system and is compatible with Windows:

2 Free firewalls rated MUCH higher than ZA are Online Armor and Commodo.
