Laptop running XP Home 2002. Windows update won't run, comes up with error 0x80072f78. I think it is probably security related, but unable to get anywhere. Loaded SuperAntiSpyware, Avast, and Comodo Firewall, but removed Comodo and went back to Windows Firewall to try to fix. Doesn't appear to like ActiveX, no pop-up window coming up. Also can't run sites like the Crucial scanner :) Help appreciated

When was the last time Windows Update worked? Do you have System Restore disabled? What makes you think the issue is security related? Have you ran through the repair section in SAS? Have you recieved any errors related to Active X?
