    Today (16DEC2008) Windows Update needed to install two things (cannot
    remember what they were) in order to run. When I click either Express or
    Custom, no updates are later displayed except an error message:

    Error number: 0x80072EE2

    Read more about steps you can take to resolve this problem (error number
    0x80072EE2) yourself.

    The solutions did not help. I believe it is one of those installations that
    caused the problem.

    Can Microsoft or someone confirm this?

    Error 0x80072EE2 is: ERROR_INTERNET_TIMEOUT

    Translation: The request has timed out.

    These errors indicate that the Windows Update client did not receive a
    response from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web site. This may be
    caused by programs that are running on the client computer or by general
    network-related failures

    Try again later, maybe tomorrow, this error sometimes rectifies itself
    without intervention. The servers may be overloaded.
