Windows 7: Windows 'internal components' don't connect anywhere.

27 Feb 2012   #1

Windows Home Premium 32bit
Windows 'internal components' don't connect anywhere.

I just recently updated from XP to 7 and everything was fine for a few weeks but that honeymoon seems to come to an end.

First symptom was that Messenger couldn't connect, and after a few days I uninstalled it and tried to re-install it. Well, the installer couldn't connect anywhere to get files and I decided to let it be.

Then I installed some new hardware and allowed Windows to connect somewhere to get the drivers (I don't usually do that, but with this hardware it has allways worked well) and it couldn't find anywhing this time. I just thought that 'well, windows, it's allways a different battle' and got the drivers from the hardware manufacturer.

Now I would really like to get the Messenger up and running again and tried to look at it again. I thought maybe I should do a windows update first and off I went. At this point I realized that the problem lies deeper than Live Essentials / Messenger. After just 1 or 2 seconds the update tells that some updates (=none) couldn't be installed + error code 8007273D which 'surprisingly' doesn't give anything helpful in Google - and same goes for all the other codes I've had along the way.

From day 1 I've had Zonealarm and Avast! running, I've also tried with them turned on but no help.

Maybe here?
