Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
If you have zone alarm on your computer, the problem is that there is a conflict with the new microsoft update and zone alarm
click on start, control panel, internet options, and then the security tab
drop the security settings down to low and see if you can go online. If you can, it is definately the new microsoft update conflict.
Go to www.zonealarm.com after you get online and click on the yellow section on the right down towards the bottom middle-ish. Zone alarm is aware of the problem and has come out with a patch to fix it. Just click on the link provided and reload the product you purchased and wahla, you back in business my freind.

In their endless effort to squeeze a few more pennies of profit from the product, many of them now instruct you to make a recovery CD yourself before doing anything else.
The software delivered with our eMachines a couple of years ago froze again and again but a brief, pleasant call to eMachines produced a set of CDs two days later.
I suggest checking MS site to see if others have had the same experience; you might find more specific help from other MS victims there.

You tried this recovery method? http://support.gateway.com/s/SOFTWARE/Medialess/MLXPMC0/MLXPMC0su17.shtml
Try this one, a full restore to as-shipped condition:
You can do this, because they ship your computer with a copy of the OS recovery built into a hidden partition of your hard drive. if you ever fdisk and reformat your hard drive, you will lose this ability.

Tips for a great answer:
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) browser includes "add-on" applications that can be downloaded and installed from Microsoft, or third-party providers, into Internet Explorer.
Occasionally, add-ons may conflict with other add-ons or software on the computer, causing errors.
These can also occur when IE settings conflict with newly installed add-ons.
Resolve add-on related error conditions quickly in IE8 by resetting Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.
Click the "Start" button. Click "Run" or "Search," and type "inetcpl.cpl in the "Run" or "Search" box, and press the "Enter" key.
Select the "Advanced" tab in the "Internet Options" window, then click the "Reset" button.
Click the "Reset" button again to confirm that you wish to reset Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.
Select the "Close" button, once the display indicates that the reset process has been completed.
Click the red "X" in the upper-right corner of Internet Explorer to close the browser.
Open Internet Explorer and the errors should be resolved.
Experience problems with Internet Explorer 7 right off the bat, and it may be due to installation problems.
Make sure you reboot twice after installing the new browser.
Download any updates for IE7.
Check the Microsoft website for recommended updates if you don't have automatic updates turned on for your computer.
Check your add-ons, those "extras" like ActiveX controls for your browser, if you still experience problems.
After accessing "manage add-ons" through the "Tools" menu in your browser window, disable all add-ons, and try browsing.
If you can successfully browse without errors on the page, then one of your add-ons may be the culprit. Enable add-ons one at a time and try browsing.
Once you find the problem, delete it or update the add-on to work with Internet Explorer 7.
Contact Microsoft if a website denies permission for entering when it shouldn't.
It could be a problem with document. domain property or the protocols of the URLs not matching.
Adjust security settings in the browser if you still experience page error messages.
Select the "Tools" menu and access "Internet Options." Under the "Security" tab, choose "Custom Level" to pull up the security settings window and review for possible problems.
Hope this helps
