    After installing the following update through "Help and Support" Window,
    I could no longer get updates, so I restored to pre-install point and could
    get updates agian.

    ***Security Update for Windows XP (KB893066)***

    When this one (KB893066) is installed I can no longer get to the windows
    updater site, and can not ping it. All other sites I have gone to are OK.

    MS web site notes issues:

    ***890345 Security update 893066 returns the default size of the TCP receive
    window in Windows 2000 to the pre-S890345 default size of 17,520 bytes
    ? This security update supports a new registry key that is named
    MaxIcmpHostRoutes. For more information, click the following article number
    to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    896350 Security update 893066 introduces the MaxIcmpHostRoutes registry entry
    ? On computers that are running Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 1
    (SP1), networking programs and tools that send manually crafted Transmission
    Control Protocol (TCP) packets over raw Internet Protocol (IP) sockets may
    stop working. This behavior may also affect programs and tools that send User
    Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets. For more information, click the following
    article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    897656 Networking programs that send TCP packets or UDP packets over raw IP
    sockets may stop working after you apply security update MS05-019 to a
    computer that is running Windows XP with Service Pack 1
    I am runnig Windows XP Pro SP2 not SP1, although SP1 was installed when I
    put this computer together.

    Anyone know what is going on?

    See if this link works...

    1. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Internet Options, click Connections, click LAN
    Settings. Uncheck "Automatically Detect Settings" and "Use Automatic configuration script"

    2. Also in the Internet Options, under "Temporary Internet Files", click the "Delete Files"
    button, check the box, "Delete all offline content", "OK". After it finishes, click the
    "Settings" button and lower the amount of disk space to use to 10 Meg. Click "OK", "Apply".
    That will increase your hard drive space by how much was in that folder. I've seen it well over
    a gig. Folders that big are prone to crosslinked files. Clear it weekly, or sooner, especially
    if IE starts acting funny. You can automate the process by clicking the "Advanced" tab, scroll
    down to "Security", and check the box, "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is
    closed", click "Apply", "OK"

    update [***Security Update for Windows XP (KB893066)***].
