Bloody Windows Update


Earlier today I installed about 6-7 windows xp security updates including one internet explorer update…

After restarting, my winamp wasn’t working , and I couldn’t surf the internet. It wasn’t my network problem because my windows live messenger, skype & utorrent were still working fine but I still couldn’t load any webpages including my router page. Another thing was that my firewall icon was missing from my task tray and vsmon.exe was not in my processes.

The last security update in July jammed ZA too but that time we couldn’t get any internet access at all… I tried all sorts of things and finally decided to turn off the damned firewall and then I got my access back. This time I tried shutting down my firewall through processes but it didn’t work too. Only when I uninstalled it that webpages started to load.

So I’ve reinstalled winamp and ZA again and its working fine.

Windows is always screwing up our lives one way or another… I guess I’m done ranting…
