error code: 0x80072efe


  • I have the XP system---I do not know if it is 32 or 64 bit. I have a older system.

    When I try to update MS Essentials (manual) the system will not update, it stops and gives error code. I am not sure about auto. update.

    I nolonger receive auto. MS security updates and can find no way of a manual up date. My auto. updates stopped about March 1st. .

    Can anyone help me with a solution for security updates and a way to update MS Essentials without uninstalling and reinstalling to update?

    I have been working at this several weeks.


    Thanks: Cherokee Tom
