Vista Will Not Update

Good morning,

My Windows Vista computer crashed recently. Using the the reinstall CD that came with the system I performed a fresh version install. Using Microsoft Update I tried to update all the service packs ect. After a few minutes the system stopped searching for updates and came back with a message that says "Windows could not search for updates (highlighted in red) Code: 80072EE2".  

The fresh version I installed is Windows Vista Business SP1.

Thanks for your help.
