Hello,

when I go to the Windows Update site, it won't let me download the updates. I always get this error.
(Error number: 0x80072EFD) I added the Microsoft update sites to my exceptions list on my firewall, and also added them to my trusted sites for IE. Still can't update Windows :thumbsup:

Please help

Thank You

What Firewall software are you using? Are you using Windows 2000?

Hello Joshuacat,

I'm using Windows 2000 and PC-cillin Internet Security 2006.

I've tried everything on that list except disabling my firewall temporarily. A friend of mine is also having the same problem, my friend also has PC-cillin Internet Security 2006. So I hope it has something to do with my firewall configuration. I have to go for a little while, but i'll be sure to try that later.

Thank You

Here are a few more ideas in This Article written by a Micro$oft MVP.
I have to disable my Internet Accelerator before I can d/l any windows updates.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Hey,

Thank you very much for the help guys. I had to get back to my real life for a few days, and just got back on the computer. It was a problem with my firewall not allowing Windows Update to connect. So i'm glad that's fixed. When I read the solutions to that error number before I posted this problem, I never saw anything about the firewall. So thanks again for the help. :thumbsup:
