All security updates stop IE7 from connecting to the internet

All IE7 Security Updates I install (cumulitive or not) cause IE7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have Windows Vista 64, IE7 and Cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using Microsoft Security Esentials and Malwarebytes Antivirus and it allways comes back clean. I am also running Windows firewall and have put Internet Explorer on the exeption list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

I'll take it that this issue also occurred when the last Cumulative Security update was installed, correct ?

Sorry this didn't help.


When (approx. date) did you install Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)?

What anti-virus application was installed before you installed MSE, was your subscription still current, and did you uninstall it before you installed MSE?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?

Can I install MSE to clean up my already-infected computer?
