Windows Update error 80072EFD, cannot update

Question: Windows Update error 80072EFD, cannot update

I have run across this error now 2 times. In the first instance the computer was run through with a fine toothed comb and all malware removed. In the second case we have not done the malware removal. For this post, I would like to deal with the first computer as the second guy is still working the steps the other I tried (unsuccessfully) on the first. The following has been done:
Scanned and cleaned of malware
Tried the steps here.
Tried the steps here.
Tried this, and this,.

Preferred Solution: Windows Update error 80072EFD, cannot update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows Update error 80072EFD, cannot update

The Windows Update error code 0x80072EFD; Error String ERROR_INTERNET_CANNOT_CONNECT occurs when the attempt to connect to the server fails.
You appear to have tried quite a few troubleshooting steps, including the Fix It tool. Nevertheless, see if something at Cannot Update Windows using Windows Update and at Windows Vista Updates Fail To Install help you.

My computer has been working properly until I got a update for the Windows Update software. After installing the update and Windows Update restarted I immediately received that error when trying to search for updates. I'm not even able to get to the part where I pick the updates, it just fails seconds after I press the button to search for updates.

After googling abit I found out that the error is somehow related to ones internet connection and firewall settings, but even after changing the internet connection and disabling antivirus/firewall I still won't get it to work.

Error: 80072EFD

Computer specifications:
AMD X2 4400+
MSI K9N Neo V2
4GB DDR2 800 MHz
Nvidia 8800GT

Antivirus: Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 (Was not working before installing it either though)

Help appreciated!

Answer:Windows Update error 80072EFD

There is no update to the actual Windows Update service, I'm afraid. Error 80072EF means something is blocking Windows Update from accessing the update server, and this means the 'update' you downloaded was most likely a virus. I recommend installing Malwarebytes immediately. It is free and quite comprehensive in its ability to root out any harmful processes running on your system.

If you have any problems installing this or any other antiviral software, please let us know.

Hi,
I have a 2 month old P750 laptop, after needing to do a restore from a drive back up, I now get the error above.
I then decided to do a toshiba recovery with a clean install and again get the same result of windows update not being able to connect to the server.

I have tried everything I can find for this error including checking the proxy settings for WU, reseting the proxy settings via CMD prompt.

I did notice something interesting while checking validation using the microsoft MGA diagnostic tool, where windows was listed as genuime but of note were some interesting reports like:

Validation code : 0
LegitCheckControl : N/A, hr=0x80070002
signed : N/A, hr=0x80070002

My understanding is the 0x80070002 means it couldn't connect the same as WU or that files are missing.

I have rebuilt the softwaredistribution folders as recommended, disabled all firewalls, removed antivirus / malware software but still no luck.

It seems funny how the same thing happens even after a clean toshiba disk recovery.

Any suggestions?

Folks

Hope you are well this fine weekend!

I have been in state of combat with my Windows 7 Home edition's inability to search for updates for around 3 months ! We're talking error 80072EFD.....so far I've:

Cleaned the registry (Reg Cure)
Completely and fully uninstalled Mcafee (using their own uninstall tool), and my antispyware program (re-installed now though AVG instead of Mcafee)
Disabled the firewall / altered site permissions
Run both available "Fix Windows Updates" tools
Checked for Malaware (Malabytes)
Ensured that I have the right settings in Component Services - there are no dependency issues

I'm at a loss how to solve this short of re-installing the OS - which would be a major pain as I have a number of big audio orientated programmes to reload.

Incidently, Windows Security Center Services has never been able to start either - I've disabled this; and my addition sound card (Creative X-FI notebook) works but stops working after about an hour (iTunes for example simply stops playing)....onboard IDT audio is fine.

I'm using a Dell Studio 1747, 4gb Ram machine pre-installed with Windows 7 Home bought in Jan 2010.....

Cant' update an x86 (vista) system. Keep getting the Code: 8007EFD, which basically says it is firewalled. The only firewall I know of is the Windows firewall. It also seems to be the only firewall that Windows security is aware of either. This happens whether or not the Windows firewall is turned on or not. Have tried the methods here: Windows Update error 80072efd - Windows Vista Help, and here: You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

I have tried it with all security off (Winpatrol, Spybot, Super anti Spyware, Avast, Windows Defender, and Windows Firewall), still no love. I have checked the coputer up and down for malware and viruses (it's a friends computer) and found and removed Internet AntiVirus, Win32 Adload.R and Video.exe. Have scanned with HJT, SAS, Malawarebytes Anti Malware (mbam), Combofix and GMER. Everything is up to date except of course MBAM, which just released version 1.37 this morning, and I haven't turned that computer on since 4 am (US, EST).

Any suggestions?

hello
i formated my pc, installed windows 7 build 6801, i used the crack "Windows 7 (All Versions) PlusPatcher_V5_Orbit30.exe" to activate windows and to be able to do updates because the official beta was not officially out.

windows update worked well, then i upgraded to build 7000 and i used an official valid product key to activate windows when asked just after the upgrade so windows update was activated with the windows genuine tool.

i started to have problems with windows update with the error 80007002 but i managed to make it work with the vista forums.

i updated to build 7057 and i am stuck with the error 80072EFD, i tried everything, i searched on everything i could find, (even translation of korean websites).

just to avoid certain typical answer that i found on forums, my msn windows live messenger has always been working well, i added the 3 windows update addresses to my firewall witch is KIS2009, and also to the file "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.txt".

in "system properties", my windows is officially activated, could you please help me to find a way to be able to use windows update because i need it especially to use my bluetooth phone in order to download drivers, it tries to connect but fail.

i have used the troubleshooter of windows 7 for windows update but it does not find anything.

thank you for your forum and your time.
sincerlly yours,

Hi,
I'm running Vista Home Premium. Toshiba had to fix my corrupted motherboard, and since then , I can't update Vista most of the time. On automatic update, about 1/3 of the updates are downloaded and the rest say "failed". On maqnual download attempts, I get an error message, error 80072EFD. I've tried to fix this in many ways, including deleting the temp update file, etc. as per posts elsewhere, to no avail. Toshiba and Microsoft support have been non-supportive. I paid Reg-Cure $30.- for software to fix this, and it did not fix it. I'm concerned about running with important updates absent. Does anyone have a clue as to how I can fix this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I've been recieving the error code recently while trying to update. Now, I've
read the support article that seems to be working for everyone, but not for
me. I've flushed the DNS, there were no hosts files to remove, and now I've
tried the command prompt (running in administrator mode as well). Yet, when
type in 'proxycfg-d' I get a message back that says 'proxycfg-d is not
recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch
file'. I've tried typing it different ways and no matter what, it gives me
the same message. I'm on Vista Home Premium and only behind Windows Firewall.

any other workaround for this?

Hi Everyone,

I am running a Domain from a Windows 2008 R2 Server. At the moment Windows Updates are not working on the Server, or the corresponding clients.

On the Server I see the following error message -



Notice above that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as never, as is the "Updates were installed".

I don't honestly believe that updates have never worked on the Server despite what is shown above.

From one of my Windows 7 client computers I see the following -



Notice in this instance that the "Most recent check for updates" is listed as the 23/04/2013, and "Updates were installed", is listed as 10/04/2013.

I tried the "Answer" shown in this link -

Windows Update Error 80072efd

After resetting the Proxy settings on the Server I saw the following -



Furthermore I have tweaked various Group Policy settings related to updates and there has been no improvement.

There is no 3rd party Firewall on either my Server or the Clients, so there is nothing to configure on this front.

Finally when setting up new clients they are able to install updates on my network whilst they are not Domain members. However as soon as the new client becomes a Domain member it gets the infamous Error 80072efd message.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Hello -

I seem to be having a snowball effect of errors with my computer. It all started when I realized I couldn't find/install new Windows Updates. I hate to say it, but I went a year without installing new updates. I would always get the error code 80072efd. I tried following Microsoft's help and was able to download and install like 70 updates a few days ago. Since then, I have been unable to use Windows Updates again and am still receiving the same error. I don't want to post too many problems in this one post so I figured we'd just start with this one. Since it seems to be the start of all my computer problems anyway hopefully if I can fix this the other errors with get fixed as well.

BTW, I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium, SP 1.

Hi all.
I am trying to update multiple Windows 7 64 bit systems in a Domain environment and keep getting error code 80072EFD. This only happens when the PC's are connected to the Domain. I brought one of the systems home and it updated no problem so I know it is not the anti-virus(Symantec Endpoint 11.5 for 64 bit systems) or the Windows Firewall.
I have added the update sites as suggested by Microsoft to the firewall and have tried doing updates with the firewall and Endpoint disabled, no luck.
I also tried it after uninstalling Endpoint, same results.
These are new Dell PC's right out of the box, I removed the resident anti-virus programs and installed Endpoint. I have done this many times in the same Domain for XP systems without any headaches so I am pretty sure it is a Windows 7 64 bit issue.
Even though they are new systems I ran MalwareBytes on them just to make sure there was nothing hinky on them from Dell, nothing found.
Do any of you tech gurus have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows update error 80072EFD running 7 64 bit on domain only

That sounds like it's a problem with the network, rather than the PC.
Check the network firewall settings - WU for Win7 uses a slightly different mechanism to AU/WU for XP and different ports may need to be opened for traffic.


firewall rules
You'll need both Windows Updates and BITS enabled.

Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.

Hi all, I am having a frustrating issue at the moment, where my pc is taking 20 minutes to boot - this is primarily because it keeps trying to install several windows updates, gets to 30% after multiple restarts, then fails, and says "recovering original windows installation" and finally boots up. It then presents a list of failed updates. This is below.
These all see to be for Windows version 1709. Can anyone tell me if my issue is possibly because, acording to my system I have version 1703 - and if so, how do I get it to 1709 so i can install these and move on?
Any advice please? This is driving me nuts. The only thing I have found online is recommendations of a full re-install, which i dont want to do, not with hundreds of Gb of games, and all the setup for HOTAS, Oculus and everything to do again, that will always be last resort for me.

I have tried:
Uninstalling BitDefender and trying again. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.Using the Windows Upgrade Assistant.Running updates in Safe Mode.

Everything I have tried has the same result. Any help would be appreciated, as a re-install would take me a couple of days to get everything back to where it is now. Other than these updates the system is perfectly stable and runs well.

Answer:Windows update failing - version 1709 Update - no real error message.

Hello,

I recieve error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run. It doesn't get past the stage of checking for updates.

I've tried several fixes including:
- Waiting 15 minutes and running Windows Update again.
- Letting Windows Update run on its own schedule.
- SFC /Scannow
- Renaming the Catroot2 Folder.
- Running 3 different Fixit tools.
- Clean windows install.

After each and every one of those fixes I've tried windows update and I still get error C80003FA.

SFC Scannow has previously said no errors, but the last run through it said there were unfixable errors. I've got the log, though for brevity's sake I will keep it until someone asks for it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Answer:Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.

Clean windows install doesn't fix it? You must be blocked, maybe your firewall???

Hey all,

So I am currently reinstalling Windows on my dad's old laptop after the hard drive decided up die on us, and I stumbled on a problem that's a bit too hard for me to fix.

Namely, I am completely unable to install any Windows Update. Not even MSE will install.

I tried running SURT, but got error code 0x8000247
I also tried running SFC /SCANNOW, it ran the verification fase until 98% and then stated that there where unfixable problems.

The displayed error codes are:
In WU: "8024A000"
In SURT: "0x8000247"
Whilst installing MSE: "0x80070643".

Attached you will find CBS.log and MSINFO with my system specs.

Toshiba HDD installed. Ran two different HDD diagnostics test on it and it passed.

SFC /scannow will not run ... displaying the message "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation". I tried the same in a elevated prompt in normal windows and in safe mode with the same result. No luck running Surface Scan.

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Windows update was working fine until maybe June or May of this year.

I have tried a number of hotfixes, several microsoft fixit (automatic normal and aggressive runs), the sfc /scannow in admin CMD mode, and also uninstalled the last ten or so updates. I have also deleted the contents of the /Downloaded Installation Files/ within C:/Windows but that also did not fix the error.

Have also tried disabling my antivirus but that did not change anything, windows update will not self-update at all.

Alright, this has been going on for awhile, and now I'm fed up.

I have been trying all day to run my windows update. I just got my computer out of the box today. The windows update says that the update process can not be done until the "update to Windows Update" is installed. I have tried to install it and I keep getting the error code 80070643. I went to the "help" area. I said to go to services and restart the office source engine to automatic (delayed start). It did not work.

I have searched microsoft.com and there is said to set the ose to manual. I tried that too! Nothing is working.

I even tried to manually install the windows update from the microsoft website and it gave me the same error code.

Several places I find online keeps saying something about office 2003, but I have 2007.

Any ideas?

I have cheked my firewall, updated my Internet Explorer (though I do think I have a service pack 2 update pending, could this be the problem?), restarted my router, ran some program codes i found on the internet from ppl who has similar issues, ended process on anything with "msn" in my task manager...etc etc....nothing seems to work....

My Windows 7 Pro sp1 machine has been unable to run windows update or update Microsoft Security Essentials (which I have now removed) since the end of October. Strangely, on a re-install of Security Essentials, it can do the initial update and get the current virus definitions, but subsequent updates fail with the 0x80072efd error. Windows Update also fails with a 80072efd error (presumably the "0x" that MSE adds to the error code is not meaningful).

Quicken is also now unable to connect to any of my financial services providers--which has me very nervous. Quicken gives me an OL-297a error.

I've run the following:
ESET scans: initial scans found a couple of trojans (trojandropper.vb.gwztjvb was one of them--but I couldn't even find a reference to that trojan via google), but unfortunately I didn't right down the details of the other and don't know where to find any logs / history. ESET no longer finds anything.

SuperAntiSpyware: scan finds tracking cookies, but nothing more

Windows Security Essentials: initially found a trojan several days ago (sorry to say I don't know which one or where to find the logs, but a different one than ESET found), but last time I ran it it found nothing.

1. It says,

There might be a problem with your Internet connection. Make sure...bla bla...

2. I used the troubleshooter and when it reached Key Ports,

It says:

Failed to connect to the service. This could be due to improper proxy or firewall settings. Please review your proxy and firewall settings through Windows Live Messenger Options. For Firewall settings, please see the retailer's instructions.

Click on the repair..blabla.

3. So, I checked my firewall and Windows Live was allowed access so there was no prob with it. I also disabled my firewall but still got this error. So, I went into the Connections tab in windows Live options and I opened the troubleshooting log.

I have had my Dell 8700 for little over a year and have had problems from the beginning.  I am 72 years old, and I am at my wits end!!!

A hard drive was replaced in the summer of 2015, but I have still had problems with the computer shutting down and my having to refresh it to factory setting.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

Answer:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

First issue is that I need to use a specific older driver for my AMD graphics card and windows 10 continues to update the driver automatically and causes my system to crash. I've gone through {Control Panel-Devices & printers}, selected my machine, then right clicked to Device Installation Settings and selected "no, let me choose what to do". This has no effect as windows continues to update the driver daily or anytime I search for updates. Is there a specific port I can block or cmd line to run?

Second issue, on the windows update window, the feature is frozen on Service Pack 1 for MS Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-bit edition @ 61%. It's been like this for a week. I've restarted the machine several times and seems to do nothing. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?

"We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet."

I am connected to internet, Mozilla firefox is ok, utorrent is ok, everything is fine except windows update.
I have try disable the firewall, turn off windows defender, disable antivirus, none of it work.
I downloaded windows10 update assistant, did not work.
I don't know what is blocking windows update form connecting to internet.

Any suggestion? or perhaps solution.

Thank You.

Answer:Unable to update, windows update cannot connect to update service

Hi, try Settings, search for Troubleshooting, click Troubleshooting
In the Window that opens click

Fix problems with Windows Update

at the bottom.

Please post back the outcome.

Also make sure you're not set to use a metered connection,
and try checking this:
Choose how updates are delivered is Off in Settings, Updates, Advanced Options

There is a Windows Updates reset script here:
Windows Update - Reset in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
and here:
Reset Windows updates - Microsoft Community

I have been working on a clients computer for a few days now.  Her computer has been having issues with installing the Windows 7 SP1 update.  Everytime i have tried to run the update i get this error "WindowsUpdate_800B0100" "WindowsUpdate_dt000".
 I have tried every "solution" except for a clean and refresh reinstall of Windows 7.  None of the solutions have worked including using "Fix It"  Update readiness tool and many other solutions found on here as well as many
other reputable sites.  Could anyone guide me to solving this problem?

Last night i reformatted my PC and installed all the critical updates, everything except drivers. Then when i was done with that i Installed my bus drivers, video & sound card drivers.

Then i shut down and went to bed.

Woke up this morning and im fully updated i just need to install service pack for vista 64 bit and im getting this error from windows update "error code 80072EE2 windows update encountered an unknown error".

Windows help gave this back to me "If you receive Windows Update error 80072ee2 while checking for updates, you might need to add the website addresses from which Windows Update downloads updates to your firewall exceptions or "allow" list."

And then this under that "Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list."

So i dunno what to do....

I am trying to update from Windows 10 OS Build 10586.589 to the Anniversary Update but my computer freezes at 1% progress. I have tried everything I can think of including: Unplugging all extra SATA drives except my main SSD, unplugging my wireless network adapter, unplugging all USB devices (even mouse and keyboard), removing old drivers and updating outdated ones, and installing the update through a USB flash drive. It always gets to the same part and freezes until I shutdown my computer and lose no data.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Cannot update, attempting to upgrade to Win 7 professional. Discovered automatic updates were fried for some time and the system did not have SP1, which is apparently required for the upgrade.

I see similar threads, each seems to require advanced individual registry repair so starting my own - if there is a generic fix please reply with it and I can give it a shot. I have tried the normal tools to fix without change- see below.

Symptoms:
Windows updates fails with an error code 8007370B - Windows Update encountered an unknown error

I have run SURT several times successfully
I have run Fixit 50202, MicrosoftFixit.wu.LB.133286320513446086.5.1.Run,
Each returns 'Repair Windows Update components' and 'Windows Update components must be repaired'
All claim to have fixed the problem (no change, naturally)
Attempted to run SFC /scannow from an elevated prompt and it fails with 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. Same behavior when attempted from Safe Boot.

Downloaded and attempted to install SP1 locally, both the all platforms version and the Win7 x64 version. Both fail with errors.

Ran the Norton remover tool and Macafee remover tool - think Norton came with the system but was never activated, ran the Macafee remover tool just to be sure.

Have renamed the Softwareupdate folder without any change.

I'm having no luck installing KB2977629 (Cumulative Security Update IE11). I repeatedly get the error 8007371B.

SURT installs with no errors. SFC /SCANNOW runs with no errors. I am uploading the requested screenshots and ZIP file.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!!!!

PS- well, I WAS uploading. My screencaptures upload great, but my CBS.zip fails with "Server error 500".
My zip file is 9.6mb-- over the 8mb limit. What can I delete from the directory to get under the 8mb limit?

I've found a way to get the CBS zip uploaded. I divided it into 4 parts. All of the CBS folder's files are included. Sorry I didn't see this earlier.
