Windows 7 Pro Update error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am currently using Windows 7 Professional and for the first time I'm having trouble updating it. About a week ago I've tried to update and the following message appeared: “Windows could not search for new updates, An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. Error(s) found: Code 80072EE2″.

My first thought was that it had something to do with the server, but I checked and everything seemed to be working properly.  Does anyone have a similar experience?

The problem you have is for Malware or virus. You are using windows 7. They have a good PC protection software which known as Microsoft security essential. You can Google it and install it. Its free.

Now, for solving updating problem, you have to login computer as an administrator. Please read this to know how to login as admin.

Now click on run and type cmd/command.>> write regsvr32 Wuaueng.dll and then press Enter.  If you get message like

"DllRegisterServer in Wuaueng.dll succeeded"

Then restart you computer and now see what happened.

Most of the time this process working. If not then you could follow the Microsoft website

Good day

Hi Johnny,

This problem could be caused by slow internet connection. I have experienced it before but when the internet connection became strong, the download of the updates just went well. So just try pinging to check the status of your internet connection to see whether packets are being sent or not. To ping simply do the following:

– Got to start, then run.

– Type cmd to go to the command prompt.

– In the command prompt type: ping

You should see the following:

If you find that there is loss of data to some extend, then you are experiencing internet connectivity problems.
