Windows Update 80072EE2 Error

Hello all, I have been having an issue for quite some time with
Windows Update in Vista. I cant connect to the service and I keep
getting error 80072EE2 (so I cannot install updates), also I cannot
install new versions of MSN Messenger (I found out that is directly
related to the Windows Update problem).

I followed the instructions of this link:
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=k...6941&x=15&y=18

But neither of those solutions worked for me. I tried analyzing the
traffic with a protocol analyzer, and indeed there is communication
between my host and Microsoft servers, so the problem could be a
synchronization / timeout one.

I am completely lost, if someone could help me I would be very
grateful.

Following is my windowsupdate.log file:
