Do you mean that the internet is not working as a result of trying to install system updates? What were you trying to install? Usually c355 refers to a problem with a driver.

You could try restoring your pc to a time before you downloaded the updates and then try downloading them manually.

No the internet does not work in safe mode but works in normal mode.

The update is internet explorer 9 for windows 7, it wont install it it just comes up with the error.

Try these suggestions from Microsoft...

  1. Check system files

  2. Reset Windows Update Components

  3. Check that all of your drivers are up to date in Device Manager.

If you select "Safe Mode With Networking" you will be able to connect to the internet as normal.
