This is a new problem for me. I had no problems with "checking for updates" until today. The "critical" update KB3204723 from last month was successfully installed and I was able to check updates manually in 15-20 minutes without any problem. Suddenly I cannot do it anymore. I get error code 80072EFE when attempting to check for updates.
Tried some suggestions from the net. Unfortunately the problem persists.
No problem with Windows 7 on the same computer (dual boot).
Are Vista servers down?
EDIT: I ran Avast, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware + Anti-Rootkit, TDSS Killer. Nothing found. My system seems to be clean.
