Nothing out of the usual and I've even gone through and killed most of the processes I can kill and killed services. I've disabled different settings using the group policy editor, I've disabled things such as DEP and quite a few other settings.
I know, like I said, I have all ports open as in on my router. My ISP doesn't block port 80, 443 or even port 22 and 23 which a lot seem to do. I can boot up a web server, ssh server or even telnet server and have people connect on default 80/443, 22 and port 23 respectively.
I've read earlier that this happened on test server with one of the patches and then with the next patch it was fixed and then the last patch before they pushed it live it did this again so it's bound to be an issue on their end. No work around has worked for the people where it's not an issue with their anti-virus software blocking the executable from executing.
