IE7 patch kills my connection

There have been 2 windows updates recently that relate to IE 7. They are
KB939653 in Oct. and KB 942615 today. After installing (and rebooting) with
each of them, my IE browser would not connect. Opera worked fine so my
connection was definitely working. Today on the status line it showed the
following: res://ieframe dll.dnserror.htm#. I got my connection back using
System Restore with WinXP.

I hate to leave my system unpatched. What can I do to protect myself and
still maintain a connection?

Thanks.

So why bother with the junk known as IE?
I rarely use the damn thing. 99% of my time on the web I use FF.

When all the "xperts" say Dump IE, that should tell you something.

Having a good firewall installed (ZoneAlarm), a HOSTS file
http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/hosts and disabling ActiveX (very
important) will fairly well protect you.

I don't use IE myself but Opera, as for the updates I don't allow
them, the important ones (which are few) I will search out, download
and install.

Shouting isn't helping either.
