It is with interest that I read the reply to your effort of helping
people with the above error messeage. I am a pastor with more than a
passing knowledge of computers and I have been busy "fixing" a PC of a
friend of mine. The problem was this error message when trying to
download and install Vista Ultimate SP 1. I also downloaded the
Standalone Sp1 and Sp2 and wrote them to a DVD. Still the same problem.
By God's Grace after searching for three (3) days solid for any type of
fix and after trying I don't know how many useless ones I somehow ended
up at your thread completely by accident or as I know to be providence
of God. I was not impressed by the comment of the person just after your
fix and I don't care that your fix was an answer to a 2year old enquiry.
It is still relevant for today so:-
WELL DONE TO YOU SIR!!!!!!
It fixed my un-fixable problem that had been frustrating me for as I
have said three (3) days solid.
Anyone else with the Error code 80072F78, try the winsock fix. That is
all it took to get the gremlin out of the PC system that I was trying to
Again I say to you sir a very LARGE thank you.
To you Mow Green. Please don't be so caustic and quick to reply in the
manner that you did as it causes people who have also knowledge to
impart , to no longer do so. Please remember that many old fixes for old
problems still work today for Windows Vista programs as in my case.
Please do not be offended as I am just trying to make sure fixes that
other people have are offered instead of them not coming forward as
they might feel threatened that their fixes might be out of date. In my
case a 2 yr.old fix worked where no other numerous fixes from at least
five of the other biggest help forums worked . May God bless you all on
this forum and see you all around.
