I found the solution to microsoft and Virus Sites being blocked

By rodmanbrowning ·
I Completely wiped the System Drive with a DOD compliant wipe. Did A clean install leaving the External drive disconected. Loaded and updated Virus and Anti-Spyware. Updated windows to SP3. Then updated the other 51 updates. On restart, after the 51 updates, microsoft sites and virus sites were blocked, again. However, Spybot S&amp notified me that a Global Startup Entry Value had been deleted! The registry entry was KB923561. The data that was deleted was "rundll.exe apphelp.dll,ShimFlushCache". So, I went to regedit searched for 'KB923561' and saw the default entry had no value. I entered the value of "rundll.exe apphelp.dll,ShimFlushCache" and VOLA every thing worked again. The mystery is what deleted the value? I have no idea. Does any one else? Also, avast block the malicious site "". Any ideas as to how to find where this is coming from. The only sites I've been to is cnet for the anti-virus and anti-malware programs. Thier update sites and microsoft's site.
