  1. I was not able to login to broker websites and elitetrader.com using Internet Explorer 7.0 this morning. I also could not connect to email server. I was able to work using Mozilla Firefox.

    I installed these security updates for Windows XP from Microsoft.com, rebooted the computer and my system appears to be operating normally:
