    Every time I run Windows Update in my 7 install, I get the the same 80072EE2 error and have no clue how to fix it. It seems to be effected by some sort of firewall, but I've tried using just windows, just mcafee, and nothing, but have had no success. It's also effecting a few of my other programs, like Zune, and I would REALLY like to get it fixed. Any help?

    I'm having a similar problem, fortunately with an optional update. I'd still like to have this ironed out. Here are the details:

    Download size: 1.3 MB

    You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.
