Unable to access Windows Update - 0x80072EFE

Unread postby ELOMWX97 » August 7th, 2010, 8:55 am

I am currently running a windows XP SP3 machine with TrendMicro internet security. I am using Firefox as a browser and Thunderbird for e-mail. Recently, I noticed that windows had stopped downloading automatic updates. When I attempt to download things manually, I receive error code 0x80072EFE. I am also unable to access the microsoft update website manually, as well as a few other sites(the computer does nothing when I click on the link). I have tried directly connecting my computer to the modem with no better results, as well as the suspension of third party firewall checks suggested under microsoft support article 836941. I have checked and there are no entries in the hosts file and the computer is running "direct access <No Proxy Server>". Upon performing a full system scan with TrendMicro, it recommended three windows fixes. I downloaded them using a different computer and installed them manually. A subsequent full system scan came up clean, but the inability to update still exists. I'm out of ideas I found on the net, and am nervous about being sold a bill of goods in my effort to fix this problem. I am keeping my laptop isolated until this is resolved, as I don't want to contaminate a second machine, but it is available for downloads and other network access. Below are the requested HiJackThis and Uninstall log reports. Please help me fix this as I am nervous about using this machine for critical transactions until this problem is resolved. Thanks.

Hi ELOMWX97,

Welcome to the forum.

My nickname is deltalima and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.


Please note the following:
  • I will be working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If after 3 days you have not responded to this topic, it will be closed, and you will need to start a new one.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

SolidWorks 2007 SP05
COSMOSMotion 2007 SP05


CAD software such as this is not normally found on a home computer. Please let me know if the computer is used for business.

This computer is not used for business. I installed that to keep my skills sharp, but don't think either of those programs work any more.

That is where I currently work. I sometimes have to access my work computer from home in two ways, one using the service "GoToMyPC.com" to log onto one machine, the other using the remote web workplace through Internet Explorer (primarily to check e-mails). That is the only time that I use Internet Explorer.

By your own admission you are posting for help for a "Business" computer.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The sections ....
.... explain why we do not offer help for such computers.

This topic is now closed
