I removed the update. Other fixes include altering the ZA setting:
Bang, no internet connection!
Searching the net (with another machine!) there's lots of very unhappy ZoneAlarm users. Installing KB951748 on a machine with ZA stops the DNS service.
ZA and MS are 'looking into the problem' but for now either uninstall KB951748 or in ZA lower the internet security setting from 'high' to 'medium'
I wouldn't want to be on a help desk today !
I don't have ZA (since last week) but having just taken a week to get my latest Firewall installed didn't want to risk it
RC, you can configure the download but not install until you say so..
from desktop, right click "my computer" and choose "properties"
Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
the choose the "Automatic Updates" Tab
then you are offered four choices I have mine set for choice 3 - "Notify me but don't automatically download or install"
choice #2 looks OK too but maybe that's what you have which didn't allow you the choice?
"Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows XP Service Pack 3 Not applicable"
