    but when i update again the same error 80072ee2 comes up. Also i called up trend micro and the updating problem was fixed by unchecking one of the proxy options so its all good on the antivirus front but windows updates still has problems

    Maybe Start Windows Modules Installer before trying Windows Update ?

    Maybe try installing Windows Updates one at a time ?

    Hi, David thanks for the help, it finally ran! the updates finally ran! i just went and unplugged my router, again, and reconnected it, again, but this time it worked! I checked for updates and the updates showed up. So happy right now, thanks for all your assistance and i hope you have a nice day.

    Good to hear it is working.

    A while back Comcast told me to reset my modem every once in a while because they make changes to how it operates.
    I reset it the other day & lost my connection.
    I used Troubleshooter for my internet connection & it said it had an invalid IP address & it changed things & fixed it.

    I've noticed too, sometimes, just restarting or unplugging everything & restarting helps to solve minor bugs.
