    When i try windows update i first get the 0x80072F8F error, about my time
    being wrong, which it most certainly is not. The internet time server,
    time.windows.com is not working, big surprise there.

    Now i have tried everything, and I mean everything that is stated on this
    newsgroup as well as around google, and nothing works. I have come to the
    conclusion that it is cauesd by an expired certificate, now what I dont get
    is that I have just reinstalled this maskine from a recovery disk, and now I
    cant update, because these certificates are expired, so how do I update them?

  3. And please try stopping your AV software/Security Suite running in the
    background *completely* and enable the Windows Firewall instead.
