Windows 7: another 80072EE2 and 80048820

another 80072EE2 and 80048820

yesterday i woke up and found that allthough my internet works and i can download/surf fine, i can't sign into anything like hotmail, gmail, windows live messenger, facebook etc. etc. so like anyone i went searching through forums and googles for a solution to the error 80072EE2 i got from windows update and 80048820 i got from windows live messenger.

i tried everything that i could short of reinstalling windows, from ipconfig/ stuff, IE options (LAN settings etc.), reinstalling my network adapter to cleaning my registry, and the list goes on.

i'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, hopefully someone out there can open my eyes to something i missed.

thanks for any help, and i'll be happy to redo every step for the 6th or 7th time as long as my system works in the end!!

Windows 7

Hi, I'm also getting the 80072EE2 whenever I try to run Windows Update. If it's of any importance, the copy of XP was using before I did a clean install of Windows 7RC wasn't allowing any Windows Updates, and wasn't allowing me to download directly from the Windows Download Center or Update website. I still can't do it even after I installed 7 with a fresh serial key.

Any ideas why it's doing this? The only reason I want Windows Update is so I can install the stupid Zune sync software, and you can't even do that now without updating Windows Update.

I'm so fed up with Microsoft; this might be the last product I try from them.
