a problem and cannot be viewed. i have tried everything and even reinstalled
IExplorer to see if it helped and it did not. Can someone please tell me

This error code translates to ERROR_INTERNET_CANNOT_CONNECT. This could be caused by
firewall software blocking the Windows Update Site.

0x80072F76," or "Error 0x80072F78" error message when you try to use the Windows Update
Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site

Open your Local Area Connection via Network Connections in Control
Panel, then click Properties.
Click on TCP/IP, click Properties.
Make sure that "Obtain an IP address Automatically" is selected
Make sure that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is selected.

If already marked as such and no joy, then see if the system can access
this page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic76554.html

If yes, then follow Steps 1 - 11 to run FixWareout.exe
Please post the 'report.txt' as described in Step 11 so that we can see
if the system was infected or still is.
