Update to 5.5.195786.1383 erases Global Rules, Predefined Policies, Port Sets...

… on one machine running XP Professional… another machine running Windows 7 Home Premium upgraded without a hitch…

Actually this was the upgrade before this one that lost these. Is there anyway to get them back besides re-entering them all by hand or completely re-installing (either of these is a real drag)?

Restore to a point previous of the update, export your config, update and import your config.
