Hello, I am running windows 7 Pro. 32bit and am unable to run windows update. I receive error Code 80072EE2. I have tried every solution on Microsoft's support page (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/836941) and could really use some help, thanks.

Ignore the fact it'll get a bit upset that you're not on Vista, the tool works for Windows 7 as well.

Thanks for the responses. I tried the Microsoft fixit (default & aggressive) as well as all the solutions on http://www.updatexp....0x80072ee2.html with no luck. The only thing I didn't try is the "Resolution Suggestion Seven: change the MTU setting on your router." This computer is in an office and no other computer has trouble using Microsoft update so I don't think the router is the problem.

I did test my Internet connection to Windows Update by attempting to download: http://windowsupdate...v4/iuident.cab. I was able to download this file so I am able to connect to Windows update.

Any other suggestions?

Okay I did the manual fixit for http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 and it did not work. I ran into a few errors however which may indicate what the problem is.


I got the folling error "The module "*.dd" was loaded but the entry-point DLLRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that "*" is a vallid DLL or OCX file and then try again

For:

regsvr32.exe mshtml.dll
regsvr32.exe shdocvw.dll
regsvr32.exe browseui.dll
regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll


And I go this error "The module "*.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified module could not be found."

For:

regsvr32.exe msxml.dll
regsvr32.exe gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32.exe sccbase.dll
regsvr32.exe slbcsp.dll
regsvr32.exe initpki.dll
regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll
regsvr32.exe muweb.dll


I got the following error: "The following command was not found: reset winsock."

For:

netsh reset winsock


Also Is there a way I can manually update my computer (like you used to be able to do with xp by going to the windows update website)?
