    Check for Updates - Error Code 80072EE2


    I apologize if this is the wrong area.

    I've been having quite a bit of trouble with this--and even when I had XP. Whenever I try to manually check for updates, it simply doesn't work, and gives me the error code. I've tried numerous things to remedy it, such as going directly from my modem to the PC, as well as uninstalling/reinstalling the ethernet driver.



    Any help?

    Have you applied any patches to remove the watermark or send feedback options if so I had the same problem and I had to do a system restore to undo the problem.

    Actually - I managed to get rid of it, some way or another. Not sure how, but I didn't apply any of those patches or do a system restore. Also, I'm having another small problem not relating to it however; as my taskbar is a really opaque color for some reason, and when ever I attempt customizing it, it goes to the XP-ish screen, rather than the newer one when I first installed it.

    That would mean that either you don't have your display drivers installed or you haven't refreshed your W.E.I. score or if that doesn't work you may not have a good enough video card for Areo.

    I'm also experiencing Windows Update error code 8007EE2 on Win 7 whenever I try to search for updates. I know that 8007EE2 stands for gateway timeout but I don't understand why I even have this timeout? I mean I have direct connection with no routers etc. I even disabled windows firewall with no luck!!!

    Besides WU Internet is working perfectly.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated!

    UPDATE: 0:39 EET (GMT +2), Never mind I solved it!

    I'm really not sure if this will help, but all I did was update my WEI (Windows Experience Index), which I hadn't done since installing OS, and Windows Update magically started to work.

    That's about it. I really didn't do anything else. I hope this helps even a little.
