After installing KB958644 today on my Windows 2003 64bit Service Pack 2 server, I can no longer ping the server and the mail ports (110 and 25 no longer work). The server is still serving sites, allowing ftp connections.

I uninstalled the update, restarted, downloaded the update from the microsoft web site, reinstalled (no errors or warnings in the event log) and restarted.

I have a Cisco ASA 550 with an ASDM (5.2) and have the windows internal firewall turned off.

Here is the ip that I cannot ping: 69.54.46.61
Here is a site on the server: http://www.rubyandramona.com

I have no idea what to do.

How can I tell if I'm running AVS? I went to add remove programs and I don't see it.

AVG is antivirus software. The issue might be a conflict with another software.

I think the problem might be the AV. You can call MS for free since it is a problem with a security update at 1-866-PCSAFETY. This is a Vista link but has the same AV as you.

Thanks dariusg. I'm going to award you the points because I appreciate your help with this.  I can no longer work on this today. I'll post a new question tomorrow if I can't get this figured out.

Post the question link here and I will join it when you start a new one. I do believe it is a conflict with the AV.

I had this issue on my Windows Server 2008 and run ClamWin for my anti-virus protection.
Actually, I fixed the issue by turning off the Windows Firewall but that's not a good option but does help point to the issue. I did not turn off the ClamWin to get it working.

my problems were unrelated to the security update. Sorry. You might want to open a new question.
