RE: error
Hello bendif,

See if the information in this MSKB article, "You receive an Error
0x80072EE2 or Error 0x80072EFD" error message when you try to use Windows
Update" helps you to resolve the problem:
<http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=836941>
In most cases, these messages are temporary or short-lived issues that are
caused by very slight interruptions in communications between the computer
that is being updated and the Windows update servers. These issues are
generally self-healing. So, before you try the troubleshooting methods in
this article, please exit the Windows Update site, wait 10 to 15 minutes,
start Windows Update again, and then check for updates. You can also let
Windows Automatic Update install the updates on its usual 24-hour cycle.

This is a fairly common Windows Update error and hopefully this article will
help you resolve the problems you are having.

When accessing the Update site, you receive the 0x80072EE2 or 0x80072EFD
error.

Good luck

Re: error
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup, please.

1. You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use
Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates:

2. Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827315

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
conjunction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachi...php?board=10.0,
http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or another appropriate forum for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.
