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

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

Can Microsoft or someone confirm this?

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.
