When updating windows 7 i get error code 80072ee2. What is it and how do i fix it?
When updating windows 7 I get the following response: Windows could not search for updates An error occurred while checking for updates for your computer error(s) found code 80072ee2 windows encountered an unknown error
click here to get help with this error
When I do this - get help - the "fix" doesn't fix it and I eventually come back to this same window
The last time I was able to update windows 7 was in December 2011.
This same problem has happened before but the "fix" fixed it some time.
I get the same error when I open internet explorer.
