Re: [WIN7] Keep getting "Additional log on information"
Original post amended for latest 2 important updates:
It cost me $103, but MS fixed it.
UPDATE #1: MS agreed to a refund.
This involves a change in a registry key. Don't do this if you are not familiar with such changes. Always backup your registry first.
Open regedit and navigate as follows:
Double-click on EnableActiveProbing
Change value to 0.
Use Internet Explorer.
Allow to simmer for a couple of hours (my own superstitious behavior).
Return to same registry entry and change 0 back to 1.
Problem should now be fixed.

After considering it, I went ahead and reinstalled the update and then used the registry modification. I have a network meter gadget that shows my external ip and to do that it has to query a server (whatismyip or ipchicken...not sure) so I don't need NCSI to tell me whether I have internet or not.
