It does, but an update can turn off Internet connection sharing. (I
was not sure of the name.) You never know what a Windows update will
do. I have even seen machines running 2 firewall programs because an
update urned on the Windows firewall, even though they already had
one running. It messed up printing to a network printer. I have even
seen DHCP blocked by installing a new firewall.
