:: Hi there,
:: the Windows/Microsoft Update on my XP machine no longer works. Its
:: an XP Home Edition - SP3 - German version. The error code is
:: 0x80072EFD - acutally this is the PC of my little brother and the
:: last updates have been perfomred automatically in September 2008.
:: All the work-around I could find here (3rd party firewall and virus
:: scan, adding microsoft update to the trusted sites, BITS Update, etc
:: ...) did not improve the situation.
:: I hope, you can help me as long as I stay with my family over the
:: holidays. I will be gone in a few days for several months and my
:: family is not very computer-literate ... though I depend on them
:: having a working system to stay in contact.
