Windows 7: Windows update loss Internet?

20 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 64 pro

I use Antivir..however I did not make sure Defender was turned off. So I will double check that. I actually recognize that update, I will double check when I am in the office tomorrow. BTW the are HP 2730p tablets. Keep you posted.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

According to the Avira website your AV also protects against spyware, so I see no reason you couldn't turn Defender off if you want to.

upgread window than lost internet ?

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and overnight auto updates installed KB890830, a Malicious Software Removal Tool update. When I sat down at my system I discovered I had no Internet or Email.

I could see the other two computers on my network and both had Internet service. One system is running Vista and the other is running XP SP2 but hadn't installed KB890830 yet.

Everything checked out on my system so I did a system restore to just prior to the update being installed and my Interrnet service returned.

Has anyone else reported this update causing a loss of Internet service and is there a fix or workaround other than just dumping the update altogether?
