Re: Error 0 x 80072EE2
I dont believe it, after 5 hours of trouble shooting other windows update
error codes, this one worked.

Great Fix.

Re: Error 0 x 80072EE2
I have been servicing a laptop running Vista Home Basic and found, after
reading this, that deleting everything(FILES ONLY) from
C:\windows\softwaredistribution worked. However I did not delete the folders
inside here, only all the files inside each folder. I then was able to check
for new updates which installed fine.
