Last night I installed the latest security bulletin updates, December of 2008, and now internet explorer will not connect to the internet. Everything else works just fine, in fact I'm using firefox right now.
Should I uninstall the security update for internet explorer? What do I do to fix this?

I have tried to revert to original default settings from internet options but it did not help. Have also scanned for viruses and spyware and comes out clean.
Anyone has any suggestions what else i can do?
