Well, it's alright. The problem is solved.
Here's what I did:
I added http://update.microsoft.com/ to the trusted sites in Internet Options.
Opened Windows Update, and it's fixed!
But after that, I REMOVED THE SITE from the trusted sites and it doesn't give me the error anymore!
I don't know what exactly the problem is, weather if it's adding http://update.microsoft.com/ to the trusted sites or some other way.
Can someone explain what happened here?

Hello,
I'm having a very similar issue, the only difference is that my error code is 80072EE2. I tried disabling my firewall, updating the time zone and time internet connection. I have McAfee for a virus protector and I ran the scan and no viruses show up. This is a new computer and the only installation I have done was the Microsoft office package I purchased with my computer. Can somebody please help me??
Thanks!

@ computer_malfunction

the only difference is that my error code is 80072EE2....

0x80072EE2 ERROR_INTERNET_TIMEOUT The request has timed out. http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/archive/wuc.htm

This is a new computer...

Have you activated Windows yet? Were you able to use Win Update/Micro$oft Update at any time prior to:

the only installation I have done was the Microsoft office package....

If so, have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling?

0x80072EE2 + ERROR_INTERNET_TIMEOUT + The request has timed out Google Search
Windows Update error 80072ee2
You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates
Windows Update Error 80072EE2 Particularly this post & other posts by @ cluberti on that thread.

Hope this helps.

Edit to add: Try this & see if updates works:

I have never been able to update. I'm not sure if I have activated Windows yet. What are the steps to activate Windows?
