What happens when you try to get the updates:  any error message?  Have you looked at the Event Viewer to see if there is any information there?   (Start orb -> eventvwr.msc in the Run or Search dialog box and hit Enter key)  Also, what version of Vista?

I am having the same issue.  It is a Vista Home Premium PC.  AV is Trend corp.  Tried disabling firewall and AV.  Error codes for Defender and Updates are 0x80072ee2 and 0x80072EFD

ITSolutionsca, you need to ask your own question instead of "piggybacking" on an already answered question by someone else.  Please see this page in the online Help documentation for Experts Exchange:
