Many people are now seeing the 0x80072ee2 update error on their system when trying to download updates for their PC. The error will typically show whenever you initiate the updates process, and is caused by your system being unable to connect to the updates server. Every time you update your PC, it basically has to download a series of files, settings & programs from an Internet service, meaning that any problem with the connection / settings of your system are going to lead to a variety of errors being formed.
This error shows when you try and download updates for your computer, and is basically caused by your PC blocking Internet access to the update server. This can be caused either by registry errors on your system, firewall issues or Internet connection problems.
The first step to fixing this error is to ensure your Internet connection is working correctly. To do this, you should click onto your favorite web browser and then navigate to Google. Type in a random word / phrase and then let it search. If the search comes up, then you know your Internet is working correctly. If it does not, you should then consult with your administrator to ensure that it’s working correctly.
If you find your Internet is working, then you need to then disable any firewalls you have temporarily. Firewalls are a big problem for Windows computers, as although they do a good job at blocking any attempts to access your PC – they can also work in the opposite way, and block legitimate programs from accessing the Internet. To ensure this is not a problem, you need to be able to use temporarily disable any sort of security feature on your computer, which will stop it from potentially blocking your connection to the update server. If you do this and find it does not help the situation, then re-enable your security software immediately.
The final step to fixing this error is to use a software program called a “registry cleaner”. This is a type of tool that scans through your system and fixes a series of errors that are inside. The problem that many people have with their systems is that their computer has too many corrupt & damaged settings inside, causing the likes of Windows Update to just stop working. Registry cleaner tools are highly effective at fixing the various errors on your system, and so if you try the previous steps mentioned in this tutorial, and find that they don’t work, then you may get some better luck from the use of one of these software programs.
