i just bought a new Dell with Windows 7 pre-installed. I cannot get it to update any Microsoft updates. It gives the Error code 80072EE2. I have checked the WEU and that did not help. Does anyone have any ideas?

Select 'Hardware' tab
Select 'Device Manager'
Select 'Network Adapters' by clicking the '+' sign
Right click the adapter connecting the pc to the home lan or gateway router

I've tried this 2x and it does not work for me. Sorry. I wish it did. I would be so happy. Do you have any other ideas?

OK, It's a "duh!!!" - sorry guys. when you go to windows update, there is a button that says "download updates, I have been clicking this. Underneath this in blue letters it says, "click here to download updates" or something to that affect. When I clicked there, I had 454 mb of updates come up. I think it's a bug. They really should not have a button if it doesn't work.

Again, sorry.
