I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In late December (after 17th),  Action Center for Windows Updates on my PC said I had more updates than the ones I already received.  I could not download them.  So, I ran the windows diagnostic for Windows Update issues.  It says it's unable to fix, because of the error I listed in my topic title.  I've had no problems with updates before.  I use Avast IT Security,so I ran an additional complete scan.  Clean.  I ran a Malwarebytes (free) and same thing.  I did receive updates on 9 December and 1 Security update on the 17 December.   Can anyone help me out or send me to a topic thread for this problem?
Thanks ahead of time for anyone who might be able to help me out.

I have a problem not unlike the person on the thread "Virus, firewall or registry problem blocking internet for windows update." The error, code 80072 EFD, says "unknown problem" but upon further research it says connection to the update site is being blocked by a firewall. Background: This a friends computer. it's an acer aspire M5640 running Vista home premium 32 bit. It came with tons of crapware on it including The Norton Security Suite. I myself had nothing but problems with Norton 2008, but I run Ultimate 64, which Norton didn't support much last March (2008) when I got it, so I told him if he liked the Norton then I would give him my Security Suite as I wasn't using it and it had 2 legal activations left on it. Of course they just ran the free 90 days and then quit updating it when the trial period was over. I next hear from them about the computer when it can't connect to the internet and sometimes get to sites they weren't trying to go to. "Son' has discovered Limewire and is "sharing" music and movies. Also "Wife" saw a popup that she had a virus, click here to fix it, so she clicked.

Apparently her computer has not been able to update 1 file (KB2742595) since it's first attempt on 1/10/2013. And unable to update (KB2789642) since 2/14/2013. The 2 files have been trying to update every few days with no success.

Every time the two mentioned files fail it gives the error code as : error 666. when i ask for more details it gives this information: "WindowsUpdate_00000666" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

It is worth noting that there have been some updates that have been successful.

A search on the internet provides no results except for a handful in other countries/languages but provide no solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I'm assuming her computer is way behind on more than a couple security updates.

below are the most recent details of the 2 failed updates

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.

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!

Hey all,

So I am currently reinstalling Windows on my dad's old laptop after the hard drive decided up die on us, and I stumbled on a problem that's a bit too hard for me to fix.

Namely, I am completely unable to install any Windows Update. Not even MSE will install.

After installing the update and Windows Update restarted I immediately received that error when trying to search for updates. I'm not even able to get to the part where I pick the updates, it just fails seconds after I press the button to search for updates.

After googling abit I found out that the error is somehow related to ones internet connection and firewall settings, but even after changing the internet connection and disabling antivirus/firewall I still won't get it to work.

A:Windows Update error 80072EFD

There is no update to the actual Windows Update service, I'm afraid. Error 80072EF means something is blocking Windows Update from accessing the update server, and this means the 'update' you downloaded was most likely a virus. I recommend installing Malwarebytes immediately. It is free and quite comprehensive in its ability to root out any harmful processes running on your system.

If you have any problems installing this or any other antiviral software, please let us know.

Folks

Hope you are well this fine weekend!

I have been in state of combat with my Windows 7 Home edition's inability to search for updates for around 3 months ! We're talking error 80072EFD.....so far I've:

Cleaned the registry (Reg Cure)
Completely and fully uninstalled Mcafee (using their own uninstall tool), and my antispyware program (re-installed now though AVG instead of Mcafee)
Disabled the firewall / altered site permissions
Run both available "Fix Windows Updates" tools
Checked for Malaware (Malabytes)
Ensured that I have the right settings in Component Services - there are no dependency issues

I'm at a loss how to solve this short of re-installing the OS - which would be a major pain as I have a number of big audio orientated programmes to reload.

Incidently, Windows Security Center Services has never been able to start either - I've disabled this; and my addition sound card (Creative X-FI notebook) works but stops working after about an hour (iTunes for example simply stops playing)....onboard IDT audio is fine.

I'm using a Dell Studio 1747, 4gb Ram machine pre-installed with Windows 7 Home bought in Jan 2010.....

I have checked the coputer up and down for malware and viruses (it's a friends computer) and found and removed Internet AntiVirus, Win32 Adload.R and Video.exe. Have scanned with HJT, SAS, Malawarebytes Anti Malware (mbam), Combofix and GMER. Everything is up to date except of course MBAM, which just released version 1.37 this morning, and I haven't turned that computer on since 4 am (US, EST).

Any suggestions?

Hi,
I'm running Vista Home Premium. Toshiba had to fix my corrupted motherboard, and since then , I can't update Vista most of the time. On automatic update, about 1/3 of the updates are downloaded and the rest say "failed". On maqnual download attempts, I get an error message, error 80072EFD. I've tried to fix this in many ways, including deleting the temp update file, etc. as per posts elsewhere, to no avail. Toshiba and Microsoft support have been non-supportive. I paid Reg-Cure $30.- for software to fix this, and it did not fix it. I'm concerned about running with important updates absent. Does anyone have a clue as to how I can fix this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

hello
i formated my pc, installed windows 7 build 6801, i used the crack "Windows 7 (All Versions) PlusPatcher_V5_Orbit30.exe" to activate windows and to be able to do updates because the official beta was not officially out.

windows update worked well, then i upgraded to build 7000 and i used an official valid product key to activate windows when asked just after the upgrade so windows update was activated with the windows genuine tool.

i started to have problems with windows update with the error 80007002 but i managed to make it work with the vista forums.

i updated to build 7057 and i am stuck with the error 80072EFD, i tried everything, i searched on everything i could find, (even translation of korean websites).

just to avoid certain typical answer that i found on forums, my msn windows live messenger has always been working well, i added the 3 windows update addresses to my firewall witch is KIS2009, and also to the file "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.txt".

in "system properties", my windows is officially activated, could you please help me to find a way to be able to use windows update because i need it especially to use my bluetooth phone in order to download drivers, it tries to connect but fail.

i have used the troubleshooter of windows 7 for windows update but it does not find anything.

thank you for your forum and your time.
sincerlly yours,

anonymthinker

Best bet -format and install 7057 - or unpatch the files you did for 6810.

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!

Hi Everyone,

I am running a Domain from a Windows 2008 R2 Server. At the moment Windows Updates are not working on the Server, or the corresponding clients.

On the Server I see the following error message -



Notice above that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as never, as is the "Updates were installed".

I don't honestly believe that updates have never worked on the Server despite what is shown above.

From one of my Windows 7 client computers I see the following -



Notice in this instance that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as the 23/04/2013, and "Updates were installed", is listed as 10/04/2013.

I tried the "Answer" shown in this link -

Windows Update Error 80072efd

After resetting the Proxy settings on the Server I saw the following -



Furthermore I have tweaked various Group Policy settings related to updates and there has been no improvement.

There is no 3rd party Firewall on either my Server or the Clients, so there is nothing to configure on this front.

Finally when setting up new clients they are able to install updates on my network whilst they are not Domain members. However as soon as the new client becomes a Domain member it gets the infamous Error 80072efd message.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Hi all.
I am trying to update multiple Windows 7 64 bit systems in a Domain environment and keep getting error code 80072EFD. This only happens when the PC's are connected to the Domain. I brought one of the systems home and it updated no problem so I know it is not the anti-virus(Symantec Endpoint 11.5 for 64 bit systems) or the Windows Firewall.
I have added the update sites as suggested by Microsoft to the firewall and have tried doing updates with the firewall and Endpoint disabled, no luck.
I also tried it after uninstalling Endpoint, same results.
These are new Dell PC's right out of the box, I removed the resident anti-virus programs and installed Endpoint. I have done this many times in the same Domain for XP systems without any headaches so I am pretty sure it is a Windows 7 64 bit issue.
Even though they are new systems I ran MalwareBytes on them just to make sure there was nothing hinky on them from Dell, nothing found.
Do any of you tech gurus have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows update error 80072EFD running 7 64 bit on domain only

That sounds like it's a problem with the network, rather than the PC.
Check the network firewall settings - WU for Win7 uses a slightly different mechanism to AU/WU for XP and different ports may need to be opened for traffic.


firewall rules
You'll need both Windows Updates and BITS enabled.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please follow this procedure.

Be sure to delete the existing logs first as explained in the procedure.

Upload ( do not post inline) the resulting SFCDETAILS.TXT file.

System File Checker – SFC

System File Checker checks system files and restores them if possible.

System File Checker places results in:
%windir%\logs\cbs

My preference is to empty the abovementioned folder BEFORE I run SFC.

How to empty the “results” folder
? Run CMD.EXE as administrator
o WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit ENTER |
o CTRL + Shift + ENTER key combo | YES button
? Type following commands, each followed with ENTER key
o CD %windir%\logs\CBS
o DEL *.*
o EXIT

To run System File Checker:
WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit Enter| CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER key combo | YES button
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Enter SFC /SCANNOW
When System File Checker finishes---

If you do not see:
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Then:
? Type EXIT to return
? RESTART your computer
? Run sfc /scannow again

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. Programs that might do this include 3rd party firewalls, web accelerators, antivirus and/or antispyware programs, and proxy servers.

You could try these Microsoft solutions:

Hey guys, this is the first time I have reached out to try and fix this problem. I haven't been able to do updates for a couple years and I have been working on this off and on.
I am reluctant to post this, since it may be the cause of the problems.... however... I think my problem stems from messing around with the drivers when I original purchased the computer. It could have also occurred when I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional... Everything seemed to work fine like updates for about a year or so. Didn't notice the updates not working until about a 2 years ago when I realized my laptop was having issues playing FFXI and I found that my graphics card was not using any resources, as well as other things seem to not working. Such as sfc /scannow, when I run it I get an error after about 10-15 minutes saying "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.", and when I run DXDiag I get very little information on my computer with a lot of N/A's, though the amount of RAM is correct as is the video memory (I think) despite not showing the correct graphics processor.

I went to school for this kind of stuff and have just fooled myself all these years, acting like I actually know stuff. I mean I may have been able to figure it out back then. But not a chance now.

Hard Drives 1TB... Really the answer to all these questions is probably whatever a Dell Inspiron 17r has... But then again I have looked before at the specs for the 17r and it didn't all look correct. I got it in 2011 and it was relatively cheap.

I installed WLM and get the 80072efd error message when I try to sign on. I have researched all previous problems about this and have tried the usual recommendations.

including

Click on the Start menu, select Run and type the following:
regsvr32 Dssenh.dll Gpkcsp.dll Slbcsp.dll Sccbase.dll

Clearing or Unclearing Proxy/detect settings

http://messenger.msn.com/Status.aspx

Updating certain DLL files

When I click on WLM's help menu's Tools/Options/Connection/Connection Troubleshooter - It tells me the Key Ports are bad - everything else is good.

I do not have the firewall blocking anything AND the regular MSN messenger works fine.

I've been having this problem for two days now. I've done practically everything in this page : http://www.google.com.my/search?hl=en&q=80072efd+live+messenger&btnG=Search&meta= but none seemed to work. the messenger did work once after I checked the "Automatically detect settings..." in LAN settings in Internet Explorer. But after that, the old problem came back again.

Here is a the problem:

1. It says,

We can't sign in to Windows Live Messenger

There might be a problem with your Internet connection. Make sure...bla bla...

Error code:80072efd

2. I used the troubleshooter and when it reached Key Ports,

It says:

Failed to connect to the service. This could be due to improper proxy or firewall settings. Please review your proxy and firewall settings through Windows Live Messenger Options. For Firewall settings, please see the retailer's instructions.

Click on the repair..blabla.

3. So, I checked my firewall and Windows Live was allowed access so there was no prob with it. I also disabled my firewall but still got this error. So, I went into the Connections tab in windows Live options and I opened the troubleshooting log.
