Windows Updates; Windows Activation Error Code 80072EFD

Q: Windows Updates; Windows Activation Error Code 80072EFD

I just completely reformatted my computer after a suspected malware attack.
The first thing I tried after reformatting and doing a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit edition was to run windows update. I received the error code 80072EFD. This is before I installed any software, firewalls, or antivirus programs. I also get this same error when trying to activate windows or office, or when trying to set up Microsoft media center.

I do have internet connection. Both firefox and internet explorer work perfectly fine.

I have been in contact with microsoft, but nothing has worked so far. I thought I would see if anyone here had any ideas.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I have already done. Please read through these before posting as you can see I have already tried a lot of things!
1. Waiting 15 minutes and trying again
2. Restarting the computer
3. Adding windows update websites to the internet explorer exceptions list: http://*.update.microsoft.com https://*.update.microsoft.com http://download.windowsupdate.com Microsoft Support http://update.microsoft.com https://update.microsoft.com
4. Verifying internet connectivity (internet works fine)
5. Tried it with Windows firewall on and off. No other firewalls are installed.
6. I tried this before any anti-virus was installed. I have since installed AVG free and tried again both with it running and disabled
7. No software accelerator programs are installed
8. windows update is not using a proxy server. Tried resetting anyway. "Direct Access "
9. Update firmware on router
10. Pluging in directly to modem
11. Have windstream reset my internet connection
12. Update BIOS to most recent version
13. Clean Boot
14. Download and use MicrosoftFixit50202 - ran in aggressive mode; Ran System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 x64

I'm attaching the windows update log and sur below as well as some screenshots of the windows update.

(PS - I know there are other forums with this issue, but I have read many of them and none of them seem to list any information I haven't already tried.)

Please, any ideas would be appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Please post an MGADiag log (while I try and digest the current logs)

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Windows can't check for updates. I can't even update or download anything from Microsoft website, any removal tools, or upgrade. I have restored the system

and nothing. When Im not moving the mouse or typing everything seems to stop, or stop loading, and when I change pages. I would like to fix this problem

without wiping everything from my computer, because I have a Home Business, that Has everything on my computer.

A:Windows Can't Check For Updates! Error Code 80072EFD

I would check out this support documentation from Windows. From the sounds of it, the Windows servers are too busy, or an AV, or firewall program is preventing you from connecting. What AV or firewalls do you have installed, if any?http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...-error-80072efdIf you have already tried these solutions, we could use some more info. What service pack is already installed? What type of computer, etc.. When did you start having this problem? Can you connect to the Windows website? Can you connect to other websites? There is a problem upgrading to service pack 2 from Vista SP1 that I am aware of, but we need more info. The more information you can provide the better.With regards,bwest0703

Hello -

I seem to be having a snowball effect of errors with my computer. It all started when I realized I couldn't find/install new Windows Updates. I hate to say it, but I went a year without installing new updates. I would always get the error code 80072efd. I tried following Microsoft's help and was able to download and install like 70 updates a few days ago. Since then, I have been unable to use Windows Updates again and am still receiving the same error. I don't want to post too many problems in this one post so I figured we'd just start with this one. Since it seems to be the start of all my computer problems anyway hopefully if I can fix this the other errors with get fixed as well.

BTW, I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, SP 1.

Thanks in advance!

When I log on, windows asks if I want to activate windows. I say yes, it goes to the background screen with a window that says "windows is already activated, click OK to exit". I do that and it logs me off immediately. It doesn't matter if I log on as administrator or user, it does the same thing. If I answer no to the first question, then it assumes I am shutting down and I get the standard shutdown/restart window. What is wrong??

A:windows xp activation code error

Welcome to TSF....

Try the following:

1. Reboot your computer into "Safe Mode".

A description of the Safe Mode Boot options in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222/en-us

2. Go to Start > Run and type: %systemroot%\system32 then press the Enter key.

3. Locate these two files: wpa.dbl and wpa.bak

4. Rename the wpa.dbl file to wpaold.dbl and wpa.bak to wpaold.bak

5. Reboot your computer into Normal Mode. This will force activation on the following boot. Sometimes if those files get corrupted, they can cause this type of problem.

Hi,
I was updating my windows 7 premium windows on my laptop to windows 10 using the windows update tool and ran into bit of a snag. Mid way of the update my laptop turned off due to thermal overheating. Upon starting laptop after it had cooled down, laptop started rolling back to the previous version of windows. Rollback was flawless except for losing the activated windows key.

The few options of restoring key is out for me, such as, the sticker behind laptop is not there anymore (its an old hp g62 laptop), possible code within box is also not an option, the code I got from produkey software is giving me error 0xC004E003, the option to activate through phone is absent in slui.exe 4 and system restore option is out too (possibly due to no recovery partition available).

Hi, I had upgraded my OEM version of Windows 8.1 (64bit Single language) to Windows 10 but now when I am trying to activate it, it shows the following Error code: 0xC004F034, windows can't activate try again later.  Is there any solution for this error code.

A:Windows 10 Activation Error code: 0xC004F034

There are literally MILLIONS of folks trying to activate Win10 right now -- mainly because MS is pushing this out for free! This code means that the activation servers are overloaded and unable to process your activation request before timing out. LOTS of folks have been reporting this problem on the Win10 forums and the advice there is to simply keep trying.  If you did the upgrade over an existing activated Win7/8/8.1 machine, it will eventually activate -- once the server load goes down.  Some folks have also reported receiving a recent Windows update and upon reboot, their PC was activated.

I would like to install Windows 10, but it won't allow me because Windows is not activated.
When I attempt to activate it I get error code 0x8004FC12.
Windows support suggests reentering the Windows code, but I don't have it.
The activation screen is showing the final 4 digits of the code, so I am guessing this machine has it on the BIOS.
I cannot access the Event Logs for some unknown reason so it is hard to diagnose any problem.

I currently have the latest version of Windows and simply do not know what to do at ALL. The screen also says near the top/middlish left corner on a card, "ask for GENUINE Microsoft software" and it also contains 3 buttons. "Server 1", "Server 2", "Server 3". I can do Ctrl + Alt + Delete and access the settings charm with Shift + Restart. I simply do not know what to do so I have come upon this forum for advice.

I have done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 on and Acer Aspire 5738G Laptop that I originally purchased Brand new from a large trusted company.

I am having trouble activating "error code 0xC004E003"

I got that error using a product key a programme retrieved for me before I done the clean reinstall. I did not know about the product key sticker on the bottom of my laptop at that time.

The key on the sticker won't even type all the way so I can't even test that key, I had the same problem and with that key on the last install and was told i had the wrong ISO now this ISO is no different.


This laptop has been in for hard drive repair with new image, now I don't know what key the they used to activate. I would assume the same one(hopefully)

I had BSOD problems and thats why I have done a clean install which has fixed all the problems I had previously.

what can I possibly do to activate asap I only have three days to fix this?

I have about 15 laptops running Windows 7 Pro SP1 (brand new, just out of the box).  I've been able to install quite a few updates on about 3 of them (just started working on them).  However, now, I'm getting error code 80200011 when I attempt
to install additional "required" updates. 
I've tried clearing the BITS queue, deleting softwaredistribution folder and ran SFC and nothing came up as being an issue.  I've searched the net on this issue, but there doesn't appear to be much on this specific problem.  These systems
are behind a proxy server.  I have other (XP, Windows 2003) systems that are able to update, but is there an issue between WIn 7 and some proxy servers?  If so, why would I be able to install some updates?
Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks all.

A:Windows 7 Pro - Windows Updates Error Code: Code 80200011

Hi,
Chek that your proxy is configured correctly, and if you can follow these steps to resolve this issue : stop the Windows Update service and make sure that the "Backround Intelligent Transfer Service" and "Cryptographic service" are started and then go to
C:\Windows and rename the software distribution folder to UpdateOLD , and finally restart the Windows Update Service

After some sort of automatic update overnight, I started receiving a blue popup message telling me to activate my copy of Windows. I first thought nothing of the message and followed the instructions, but the activate windows button under PC settings gave me an error. I left it alone figuring it was a one time issue, but as the popup happened again, I realized that the issue needed to be resolved. I looked up the error code I was given and was told to activate by phone. I did so and after the automated operator said "if there are no errors, your product was activated successfully" I continued using my computer as normal, since there were no errors. The popup came up again, and at this point I was stumped. I looked online for more solutions, but almost every one of them was either unresolved or solved via the phone activation. One said to restart my computer, but that didn't work either. I contacted Microsoft support yesterday, and they deemed that the issue was a problem with the activation code, and redirected me to Dreamspark, where I received my code initially. With no response from Dreamspark yet, and a computer that irritates me to use for any application as the popup is extremely intrusive, I am looking for other solutions to this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Windows Activation Popup - Error code: 0xC004F012

Please see the first thread and provide a diagnostic report.

That error is normally due to the software licencing service not executing - check the report for Service Available - should be true.

I've recently run in to activation issues with my Windows 7 Pro. A few months ago I cloned my HDD onto a new Samsung EVO SSD 250Gb. Everything was working fine until a few weeks later Microsoft pushed an auto updat; all of the sudden Windows was failing activation giving an error code: 0x8007005. I then preformed a clean install of windows on the same SSD drive. It activated online with no issues but after the 190 or so automatic updates it again was failing the activation. I called Microsoft to help troubleshoot the issue and they did a remote connection. We've installed the OS about 5 times with microsoft tech at the helm all with the same outcome.

Microsoft sent me a new replacement DVD and key. I received it in the mail the other day and again did a clean install; again I passed the online activation but after the all the auto updates it reverted back to a non-genuine status.

Microsoft tech is telling me that this issue is likely due to my SSD that the OS is on because he says he has eliminated all other possibilities. With a brand new SSD from Newegg I suspect that it is not the issue but something else entirely? I am really at my wits end regarding this.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues with failing activation and what was done to overcome it?

Thanks in advance!!

Hi
Win 7 activation is failing due to error code 0xc004e003
I will post the MGAD Tool results at the end of the post, but first I'll explain the full situation (in case it helps)
A friend asked me to sort out their PC as it was stuck continually attempting, and failing, to downloading new Windows updates.
When I took a look, I noticed it had the option to upgrade to Win10. After checking with them, they said they would give it a try so I installed it.
After a bit of playing we noticed the graphics card wasn't fully compatible and would no longer let them play Minecraft (their kids favourite game), so I used the revert to Win7 option.
However, after Win7 had been re-installed it started saying that I needed to be authenticated. Upon trying to I just get the code 0xc004e003 even though (as far as I am aware) it was fully authenticated previously.
The details from MGAD follow:

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

Hi
The error code  0xC004E003 simply means that the Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed.
Here is what you need to do.1. Press the WINKEY+R to bring up the Run dialog box.2. Type  SLUI 4  in the box and press OK. This will start the Telephone Activation Wizard.3. Select your country in the drop down menu and click the Next Button. Follow the instructions on the screen and call the number that is shown there.
Follow the recorded instructions and when the telephone activation fails, stay on the line and an Activation Representative will answer. Just describe the problem you are experiencing and they will manually activate the system for you.Hope this helps.Thank You for testing Windows 7

A:Error Code: 80072EFD

Hello deziking and welcome to Seven Forums.

The cause for this error code might be a high number of update requests on the Windows Update servers. Close Windows Update, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then run Windows Update again. Or you could try to manually select and update just a few updates at a time, run your computer for a while, and if no problems occur, install the next few updates. An added advantage to updating just a few at a time is if an update causes problems you'll know exactly which group it's in. Uninstall that group then reinstall one at a time.

If you continue to receive this error, it might mean that a program running on your computer is preventing Windows Update Services (SVCHOST) from accessing the Internet.

Suddenly Windows 7 has stopped installing Windows Updates. It downloads, then creates restore point, starts installation, but then comes back with the error code 800F0900. This happens with all the updates when carried out individually, critical or optional. I first went through the process of clearing all the Start-up Programs in the Services section of msconfig. As that did not solve it I then stopped all but MS services, and that did not solve it.  I tried the Microsoft .NET Setup Verification Tool. This said there were problems that it could not fix and sent a report to Microsoft.  Following an earlier thread on this site, I installed and used the Windows Repair program from Tweeking.com. This failed to solve the problem. Does any one have any other possible advice to help solve this problem ?

A:Windows Updates will not install. Error code 800F0900 for all updates.

I would try running the System Update Readiness Tool:  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20858 .

There's no problem showing in your report - Windows is properly activated and was validated on 14th August.

Just over a month ago I did a clean install of windows on my laptop because it was really slowing down. All went fine except for a couple of windows update problems which I fixed and it was back to being fast again. Anyway today I turned it on and it said my windows was not genuine so I went to the activation tab and it said that my product key had never been properly activated which is a bit strange as I quite sure I activated it properly after I did the clean install. I tried reactivating it but it came up with the error code 0xc004f063 and I was really confused. I have not tried any of the solutions on any other threads as I know that sometimes it can mess up your computer if isn't specifically for your problem/system. I have posted the diagnostics below as recommended:

A:Alienware M17xr4 Windows 7 HP x64 Activation error code 0xc004f063

It looks like you reinstalled using Retail media, rather than the Alienware Recovery media.
That being the case, you MUST use the Product Key from your COA sticker for activation rather than the OEM_SLP Key currently in use.


You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.
You may need to activate by phone.

Hi everyone,

I've just made a fresh windows 7 install on my laptop, but can't activate it, since I get the error code indicated above. Can't activate over phone either since the option is completely absent and slui.exe 4 doesn't work (just shows me the screen to buy a new product key, type a different one or contact microsoft to help resolve the problem). Here is the diagnostic report, hope it helps:

A:Windows Activation Error, error code 0xC004E003

Welcome to our forum TSNKami.

Your system will never activate in the state it is in now.
Your system has a blocked/stolen Lenovo product code.

From your log.

The way you solve this problem is buy Windows 7 from a proper dealer and installed it with the proper matching COA key.
