Zone alarm problem

Windows updated itself last night and when I rebooted I couldn't connect to the internet. I found the problem is Zone Alarm. Now whenever I turn "Internet Zone Security" to "High" I can't connect to the Internet, unless I turn it to "Medium." I used to keep the setting on "High" and now don't know what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated.

Nevermind there was a Windows Update problem

I read there is a Windows update problem affecting Zone Alarm and that it has to be turned to "medium" Security.
