Cannot get Windows to do patch updates
Posted on 2011-03-01
I have a new Dell Latitude Laptop (E6510) with Windows 7 Pro (32 bit). I cannot get it to update. In the action center I keep getting a notification that Windows failed to update automatically. When I click on the link to try to update it manually, I get:
"Windows could not search for new updates. An erroro occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. Error(s) found: Code 90072EFE Windows update encountered an unknown error."
I have never been able to check for updates since I have got this machine.
Additionally, I apparently cannot update Adobe flashplayer if that is anyway related.
