    Each day i try to go on the internet but I have to use a restore point prior to January 24, 2011 in order for my computer to go online. If I allow the newer Microsoft updates, my computer tells me that I have a connection problem and cannot connect. I am connected with a Netgear ethernet switch. Has anyone else had this?

    Maybe you also need to update your network adapter driver?

    Many updates from MS are indeed drivers. I believe we've all had a problem or two with them Try doing a selective install of updates; look at them before you install if any are indeed drivers don't install them and see what happens.
