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?

Right click the 'My computer' icon on the desktop
Select 'Properties'
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.
