Always state your full Windows version (e.g. Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2)
when posting in a forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

You may encounter temporary connection-related errors [e.g., 0x80072EFD]
when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates:

How do I reset Windows Update components?
[Access KB971058 via Internet Explorer (32-bit) only; Run the Fix It in
DEFAULT and AGGRESSIVE modes, then reboot]
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

NB: If the computer's infected, a Reset won't help.
