Does anyone else have a problem after indtalling windows updates? We are running a Dell Dimension 2400 and after installing updates BT broadband disconnects after 5 mins constantly, sometimes it doesnt detect the modem and we have to plug it back in, sometimes we cant left click links in internet explorer and we end up having to right click and select "open in new window" and the pc generally plays up, then after a couple of days it seems to sort itself out. Anyone know a cause or fix for this?

There is a new software update for Windows Update, this may sort out the problem.

DONT INSTALL UPDATES THEY SEEM TO CONFLICT WITH DIFFERENT PROGRAMMES. HAS LONG AS YOUVE GOT GOOD PROTECTION, FIREWALLS, ECT.EVERYTHING WORKS FINE WITHOUT THEM.

I disagree with your comment directly above this saying that you don't need to install updates as a couple of years ago I got infected with the MS Blaster worm despite having 'good protection' like firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware.
