I am volunteering my time to a local fire department and they just received two laptops from Dell today. They are both Vostros with i3 processors and Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. I took them and am cleaning them up from the "trial" and "bloatware" that is on them. I found the Windows update failed with update Error 80072ee2.

Here is what fixed it:

I went into the registry and found:



I deleted the entry for UseWUServer (at first I just tried setting it to 0, but did not resolve the problem)and restarted the system. Now the updates work just fine.

Looks like Trendmicro isn't fully uninstalling the software!
