Internet died After McAfee Software Update

Operating a small ISP, rest assured there is never a dull moment, and sometimes never a shortage of angry clients, especially when they have no internet.

Walking in to my office Monday morning.  I was bombarded with several phone calls from clients saying they had no Internet access.

After about 12 calls and a client bringing in their laptop, I figured out the issue was with an automatic update from McAfee, after further reasearch I found several articles including this one from where it talks about the issue.

McAfee has posted a step by step bulletin on their website on how to fix the issue,  you can find the info here,

So if you have done a McAfeee update on your PC on or around the 21st of August you where most likely affected by the glitch.
