RE: [Error number: 0x80072EFD] auto update wont work
What do you mean as far as a problem with the OS?? Any solutions?

Another symptom is that when I get errors and I try to send reports to MS it
returns and normally it would give a message to me and tell me why...when I
click the link it says that the file is not associated with any program go to
folded and select a program for it...dont know if that helps or not.
