A very brief search of the web, try google,
comes back with many hits for the error code
when associated with windows update.

Here is a sample...
http://www.windowsupdateadvisor.com/...x80072efd.html
http://www.velocityreviews.com/forum...-kb889293.html

The second link contains a remedy that someone has found to be a success...

"Delete the contents of the DataStore folder and the Download folder,
found in the Win32 folder. Re-try the upgrade installation."
