Before going to Windows Update my Internet Explorer
was working fine. When I went through updating to IE
7, and now I'm unable to get online. Then I updated to
IE 8, but the same result of not being able to get online.

Tried setting IE's proxy settings, nothing.

What can I do to correct this issue.

Any additional firewall running on your pc?
Maybe the application will be blocked, because of program change after the update.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Whenever I go to church, I thank God that I don't have windows updates enabled.

Does Firefox work? Don't set any proxies in IE.

No firefox does not work. It says that there is not a
connection but there is. When I go into "Safe Mode", Internet
Explorer works, and also Firefox. I had Nortons Antivirus on
the system but I think I got rid of it. I say that due to the fact
of having to remove it from the system via the Registry. The
Norton's wasn't working properly and it was a 2006 version.
When i tried to uninstall, it would ask to long into it in order to
uninstall. So anything with Norton and Symantec in the
registry was deleted.
But now I have no clue to what could be blocking the
connection.

Also in safe mode, when I go to Windows updates I get an
error msg: "0x8007043c"

I'm in the dark.

Registry? Like you did a manual edit?

Symantec has a remove all tool.

Bet you didn't save a backup of the registry before you edited it. Always give yourself a back door.

Do you get an ip address? Can you ping your dns server? Ping google?

If you have internet in safe mode, that means something is starting in msconfig that's blocking it during normal boot.

Run msconfig, go to the startup tab, disable all, click apply & ok, reboot, click ok & see what happens.

Run Hijack This so I can see what's running. As I said, if you have internet in safe mode, something is running that's blocking the net, after a normal boot.

It still could be Symantec related.

Well ran the Hjack software. There were lots of things running
but symantec was there so checked the box next to them to
stop. I then rebooted the system and I still get a dsn error with
IE, and fail to connect with fire fox.

If you saw symantec in the log, then you didn't remove all of it from the registry.

Thank you all, the problem has been rectified. Never thought
that the Symantec would block all access to the Internet.
Funny enough, I simply did a search of "Symantec" in safe
mode and deleted all. Rebooted and now I'm good.

What gave me the Idea was the link Johnw sent.

But thanks 2 you all,

Symantec can kill anything. They are very good at it.
