Cannot connect to internet after installing microsoft security update

HI all,
My desktop did a security update (KB2286198) today & after I had installed & restarted I had no internet access. I have the pc in a wired connection via ethernet. My laptop connects no problem (wireless) I have the BT homehub 2.0 & use microsoft security essentials alongside windows firewall.
OS is windows 7 Ultimate.
Does anyone know of a fix for this? I have retored to an earlier restore point before the security update was installed & I instantly fixed the problem, i have done this 4 times now & its becoming a pain in the proverbial
Please Help

Microsoft Security Essentials Update Utility
One disadvantage of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is that it uses Windows Update to update the virus definition files. If you disabled the Windows update for some reasons MSE won’t update anymore. The MSE Update Utility can be used here to update MSE even if Windows Update is disabled.
