    On the Spanish side of the forum, I am not getting all the help I need, so I
    am coming here to see if you guys can help me (is good to know English).

    The thing is, I got like 2 weeks with this issue, today I finally decided to
    get official support via email from Micro$oft but when I try to submit the
    form, I get an error, so I decided to come to English groups.

    I get the error 0x80072ee2, I tried the Knowledge Base article
    ( with NO SUCCESS at all, I have
    problems on steps 5 and 6 on method 1, seems to me like this article is not
    useful for Windows Vista, I mean, the guided help is not even designed for

    I can not update Windows Defender either, I get the same error code.

    I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bits, Spanish Edition (it's OK, I
    understand English).

    Please, help me.

    Here's how I managed to solve this issue:

    I was reading somewhere, just delete some content from the
    SoftwareDistribution folder on C>windows>softwaredistribution. Type your help
    files the error code 80070003 and follow procedures, you done!
