Default internet disconnect

Everytime I download an update from microsoft, when the download completes, it disconnects me from the net. I though there was a setting to stop this but I can't seem to find it. I am using XP Home with SP-1.

YES I do. I have 3.1, 95, 98, ME, XP that I had installed on a computer that decided to just give up after about 1 year and XP- with SP-1 on a new computer. The one I have from the computer that just gave up on me, I would like to put on another computer but microsoft will not answer me back on that.

Is it just when you use Microsoft Update or any download thru Internet Explorer?
