security and XP updates

  rosebank 17:57 06 Jan 2008

On 24 Dec I installed XP updates-
KB 942840
and Security updates-
KB 944653
After restart I could not access IE, OE, anything in the control panel and varies other sites. I kept getting the message "Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"
After trying varies things my Zone Alarm popped up a messge something about windows trying to load something about Fat32, sorry I did not take a note of the message. I allowed it and was able to access my files. The next time I restarted I had the same problem so when I got in I did a system restore.
Has anyone came accross this problem, what is the answer, and how can I safely get my updates ?
