Reset Internet Explorer Settings

    Windows XP using IE 8

    While in the midst of having internet access problems, under internet
    options > advanced, I clicked on Reset Internet Explorer settings.

    My first question relates to all of the updates I have installed previously
    using Windows Update. Were those prior installed updates affected at all by
    what I did? I went to Windows Update, and it didn't identify any updates to
    be installed.

    Second, what exactly does the Reset settings feature do; I'm guessing it
    just restores everything to the default options as when it was originally
    installed?

    Now that I'm back to normal in accessing the internet, is there anything I
    need to be sure to do, having used the Reset settings feature?

    Thanks in advance.
