RE: Vista Update error 80072EFD after joining domain
had same problem with updates even not using any domain servers. But
following 5 easy steps worked for me.
IE (internet Explorer) > tools > Internet Options
Then click "Connections" Tab then click on "Lan settings" Button
remove check box for
" Use automatice configuration script "
where you may also have somekind of localhost address with proxy thing in
Select check box for
" Automaticaly detect setting "
That's all then try to update windows.
I did all this and Every thing seems cool sgain now.
