    [Error number: 0x80072F8F] Time & Date Out of Sync with Certificat

    I have just reinstalled Win XP on my laptop (puchased from USA, now located
    in South Korea). I need to update windows but whenever I try, I get the
    error message saying "Your computer's date and time appear to be out of sync
    with an update certificate. To fix this:"

    So far, I have tried reverting all dates, locations to the USA (from the
    Korean setting). And I have also tried the method below (as suggested by
    Microsoft troubleshooting page).

    2. Register Softpub.dll, mssip32.dll, and initpki.dll
    Click Start.
    Choose Run.
    In the Run box, type regsvr32 SOFTPUB.dll.
    Click OK.
    In the Run box, type regsvr32 Mssip32.dll.
    Click OK.
    In the Run box, type regsvr32 initpki.dll.
    Click OK.


    NONE have worked so far. I have upgraded my BIOS and audio driver from
    dell.com and everything seems fine, but the inability to bypass the Restore
    Hidden Update stage. Thanks.

    If anything, can anyone tell me how to get in touch with a microsoft help
    email? I can't seem to find that, either.

    1. Double click the clock in the bottom right hand corner.
    2. Check you have the correct time and date.
    3. Click the Time Zone Tab.
    4. Check you have the correct time zone.

    Set them to your Korea times.

    On German MS Server 2003 (without new installation, without changing location
    or timezone) I have the same error. Neither setting a different timezone or
    do the registering stuff helps :-(

    Did you also see this?

    http://www.windowsbbs.com/showthread...677#post181677

    (Google web search for
    "date and time" "out of sync" "update certificate" (MSFT OR MVP)
    )

    What version of Windows do you have?
    What version of WU are your running?

    BTW the MVP's suggestion to look for contextual log information
    was based on an assumption that the poster was using WUv4.
    If you are not running WUv4 your log will be in
    %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log
    instead.

    Take another look at your date. Make sure you have the right year typed in. Try going to the internet time tab on the clock window. Click "Update Now". This will take a few minutes. If you get an error then the wrong date or time is set in the "Date & Time" tab. Or, the timezone may be wrong. If the "Internet Time" tab populates, then check the time and date shown to the "date & Time" tab to be sure they are set correctly.

    The Year was off on mine. That was what got me.
