, and then after rebooting...
Iam having this VERY annoying problem that has stumpted me for a couple of days now...
receiving the " Error number: 0x80072EE7 "
I tried to troubleshoot this error via the Microsoft Knowledge Base @ http://www.update.mi...u...n&IsMu=True
To no help at all ( Unable to locate the host file it is talking about lol)
i go to my computer > c: ( Hard drive ) and NOTHING comes up !!! ( Strange ??? )
I right click , select " Properties " and it says used space : 2.81 GB FREE : 188MB
iam sure my hard drive is ALOT bigger than that lol BTW: Right now as i am typing this is when i have realised all this has happened
I read at the bottom section of the " Microsoft Knowledge Base Write-up "
Applications like web accelerators, Tweak Master DNS, Spyblockers, etc., can add static IP entries for the Windows Update site into your HOSTS file, which cause Windows Update to fail
I have NOT run or installed ANY of these applications !!!
All i have is avast home ( VS ) , and Zonealarm ( Firewall )
I understand this is not 100% Secure...
How on earth can this have happened on a freshly installed installion only 3 days ago ??? ( Crazy/strange if you asked me )
The last thing i have done ( As directed by a fellow geeker in the IRC chat ) was to run the Dial-a-fix Application
Did not run successful at first ... though i run it from F: ( USB ) it hung at Stopping Cryptsvc
So i extracted it to the desktop , to no help
as directed i run from safe mode ... and was successful
i saved the log to the desktop , and now it is gone... along with the HOLE extracted Contents !!! ( Left with a " Empty " folder named Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24 ( this is a new folder ( created from safe mode )
and its Partially there ( still named " New folder " lol ) , so i know it has not been lost in transition from safe mode to normal mode , because the new folder and the folder named " Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24 " from safe mode is still there !!!
it is beyond me this one... as i was just about to post the log lol i realised... it is not there !!!
Am i better off reformatting once again ??? ( only to have it probably happen again ) , dont you just love reformatting lol
I hope somone out there can help me out , this one has blown me clear out of the water " Stumpted me "
Never heard of it ... nor have i come across this issue befor
Waiting patiently for reply
PS: iam woundering weather it has anything to do with the " Hotfix for Windows Media Player 11 ( KB939683 ) update ( As this was the last one installed ( iam assuming )) "
Thank you for your time ( And efforts )
