    Last night i reformatted my PC and installed all the critical updates, everything except drivers. Then when i was done with that i Installed my bus drivers, video & sound card drivers.

    Then i shut down and went to bed.

    Woke up this morning and im fully updated i just need to install service pack for vista 64 bit and im getting this error from windows update "error code 80072EE2 windows update encountered an unknown error".

    Windows help gave this back to me "If you receive Windows Update error 80072ee2 while checking for updates, you might need to add the website addresses from which Windows Update downloads updates to your firewall exceptions or "allow" list."

    And then this under that "Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list."

    So i dunno what to do....
