    Anyone else having problems with Windows Update today


    As the title says upon checking for Updates I am getting Codes 801901F7 or 80072EE2 or 80072EFD which I believe is a problem with connecting with the MS server.
    Have ran the Troubleshooters, Reset, cleared the Cache, SFC and DISM, all reporting no problems. No connection problems either.

    I don't think this had anything to do with CCleaner or your resetting.
    I haven't done anything and windows update now works for me. So it was probably a problem on Microsoft servers, not on our side.
