    Windows 7 Update error 80072F78

    I am recieving this error for the last month, I have tried many 'fixes' I
    have found on various sites. Still it will not connect to update.

    I am on a large network (The only computer with windows 7!) and we changed
    all the connection details, auto and manual and still nothing. Changed proxy
    settings, disabled them, running out of options!

    My last successful update batch (20th Jan) failed on an update for HP
    Display. From then its not worked. Don't know if its anything to do with it,
    but information none the less.

    If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great.

    Search the internet for this error code. There has been quite a bit of
    instances of this code.

    It was ill advised to get an update via Microsoft Update for hardware not
    made by MS.

    Hello Kathryn ,

    Please confirm your system clock, and Time Zone also the Date are set
    properly,
    Having it set incorrectly can cause this type of error.
