error code 0x80072efd continually on Windows/Microsoft Update

I've got WinXP Pro SP2 on a uni halls LAN connection with Windows Firewall
and no anti-virus or anti-spyware, at the moment. After fresh install on a
clean hard drive I've not been able to access Windows Update or Microsoft
Update. I've tried everything that I've seen suggested so far such as at:
http://www.updatexp.com/0x80072efd.html with no luck. I've spoken to other
people on the same halls network and they have no problems accessing Windows
Update, so it has to be something to do with this machine!

I also cannot access Windows Live Messenger as it lets me sign in but
doesn't connect (is this related?)

RE: error code 0x80072efd continually on Windows/Microsoft Update

More info from before I now also get the error code: 0x80072f78 - which is
bizarre as because as far as i'm aware there is no proxy ability on my
connection.

I also noticed the following in event viewer:
"Failed auto update retrieval of third-party root list sequence number from:
<http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootseq.txt> with error: This network connection does not exist."

any suggestions would be great :-)

On the contrary, your earlier post shows that your PC is configured with web
proxies at salford.ac.uk. Are you in fact still at Salford?

This is just another symptom that your internet connection is not working
correctly.

This does not seem to be specifically a Windows Update problem - I suggest
you take your network problems up with your local IT support staff.

Re: error code 0x80072efd continually on Windows/Microsoft Update

Thanks for the response Robin. It's appreciated.

I had started to suspect that it might be something to do with the network
even though local staff had said that it was a problem with my PC (that they
have been unable to work out). I shall now have another go and see what
happens.

I was having a problem with this error as well. With my windowslive hotmail...I couldn't send or receive emails...then my son decided to unplug then replug our router~everything works great now. Hope this helps someone.
