Having just taken reciept of a new pc yesterday, Vista!!! Prior to that I was using XP-Home.I forgot to turn off automatic updates, hence I was bombarded with them resulting in being unable to conect to the internet for both browsing and mail, well I could conect but not get any web pages to open nor recieve my email. My brother-in-law had the problem a week or so ago and I was able to advise him to do a system restore to a day prior to the updates. However, this being a new machine, I could not restore to an earlier date resulting in the need to put it back to factory default. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a way round it other than turing off automatic updates?
