I seem to have exhausted most of the online helps and suggestions on this
annoying windows updates failures. It is obviously an update that caused the
problems in the first place. I had 3 separate laptops to deal with one with
the update failure problems.
One that was okay until it did the latest batch of updates, it now fails.
And a brand new laptop that I ran updates on, first did the WGA updates then
did SP3 update, then updates following SP3 all okay until after the ones
installed after the full SP3 update. Now same problem as the others.
So now thanks to what is obviously a microsoft update I now have 3 laptops
that won't update windows. The new laptop is straight out of the box, first
thing done windows updates so no other software on their except manufacturers
stuff. All 3 laptops are of different manufacture.
Seems to be consistently error 0x80072EFD and
Have tried the suggested methods that have come up on these and other forums
and none have worked so far. The systems all are using standard microsoft
firewall, but nonetheless I've followed
suggestions and the problems remain.
just keep swimming..........
