Windows Update Error 0x80072EE4
Posted on 2004-11-27
I have delayed installing SP2 until now (couldn't afford to chance having problems on this laptop), but have decided to go ahead now.
When I go to the Windows Update page and it searches for updates, it quickly comes back with this error:
Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.
Error number: 0x80072EE4
I realize that this is a SSL error caused if the date and time on my computer varies too much from the valid date and time of the SSL certificates on Windows Update (I haven't done updates since July 31). I cannot find a resolution to this error anywhere on Microsoft Support.
Can you tell me how to eliminate the error so I may go ahead and install SP2 without having to order the CD? I have everything backed up and ready to install SP2 and don't want to go through the entire procedure again.
