2 hours ago I got the notice that a new update was available, I installed it. The install went as others have, smoothly. After the restart anything that was to use an internet connect would not work. I have connection, I checked with my IP, all android devices connect as does the linux machine I'm writing this note on. The little window in the lower right side of the screen shows that I'm connected. No browser/email program/ etc will connect. I've tried 4 different browsers and Thunderbird mail. I tried doing a "troubleshoot" scan and it found nothing wrong.
Now what? Anyone.

If you have System Restore turned on, I would go back to a date before the update. If you don’t have System Restore turned on, uninstall the update. Here is a guide on how to uninstall Windows Updates. Go down to the section where it says “Uninstall Typical Windows Updates”.

After you uninstalled the update, download Windows Update MiniTool and block the update so it does not install again.

Do a YouTube search for Windows Update MiniTool to learn how to use it.

The "little window" you refer to can usually only show that a connection is available.
Click it and click your known connection. There will be two small squares that will pop up.
"connect automatically", and " connect now" - tick both if not already done

Try right click (Win 10 Pro) on the "The little window" select Troubleshoot Problems.
