You may receive error code “0x80072F8F” when activating Microsoft Windows or when installing a Windows Update. The error is basically related to your computer’s date and time settings. It seems like Microsoft doesn’t want the computer to be in the wrong date or time when activating the operating system or when installing a Windows Update. The error can be encountered on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

To fix the problem, just set the correct date and time. Try to synchronize your computer’s time with either “time.nist.gov” or “time.windows.com.” On my computer, I synchronize the time with “time.nist.gov” because “time.windows.com” doesn’t seem to work. After setting this up, select the correct time zone according to your current location.

When you are finished, try installing the Windows Update again or try activating Windows again and see if it works.
