  2. 80072EFE ERROR_INTERNET_CONNECTION_ABORTED
    Some network problem or the server/proxy reset the socket connection

    A manual installation should not have either of the above issues.
    To be clear, you manually downloaded the update and it failed to install
    or you tried to manually install the update that was downloaded by
    Automatic Updates [Windows Updates, in Vista] ?

    Are there any other updates listed for XML 4.0 SP2 in Add/Remove
    Programs in the Control Panel ?

    Is the native Vista firewall being used or is there a 3rd party firewall
    installed ?

    This worked on the two Vista machines that we have.

    1) Create a folder on C:\ drive called 'WUAGENT'. Use this directory to
    store the Windows Update Agent file (see next step).

    2) Go to the link below, and download 'WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe' to the
    C:\WUAGENT directory:

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

    3) Open the Command Prompt and forced a re-install of the Windows Update
    Agent with the following command:

    C:\WUAGENT\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    4) Try to re-install the update

    I am also having a similar problem. I sometimes leave microsoft running for
    well over an hour and get the same code where no update whatsoever is listed.
    I recently installed service pack 1 expecting the problem would be fixed yet
    i still get the error.

  10. Hello: I have tried with this solution, but it didn't work because my
    command prompt doesn't allow to introduce some of the symbols that you
    suggest, like "\". I can't download the actualizations. And it appears the
    errors 8024401B or 800700B, alternatively. Sorry, but Spanish is mi native
    language. Please help me to solve this problem. Thanks. Ricardo

    Error message when you use the Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web site
    to install updates: "0x8007000B"
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956699/

    Windows Error Code 8024401b
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/cd1c2f39-7895-734a-7541-477af546b3b11033.mspx

    MS notes -
    That error (8024401B) is Http status 407 - proxy authentication required.
    The windows update agent runs under the context of the local system account,
    so even if you have been given rights to access resources on the internet,
    it may fail.

    Your proxy admin should change the configuration to not require
    authentication for the following:

    http://download.windowsupdate.com
    https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com

  12. Dear TaurAnian: thanks a lot for your answer, but it didn't work. I have made
    all that you have recommended, but the error 800700 appears again. I am with
    the service "Windows installer" working, I work without proxy, I introduced
    all your websites in my allowed sites in the configuration of security of
    internet, I introduced the order (C:\WUAGENT\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe
    /wuforce) in the command promtp, but it tells me that it is not needed
    because "the agent of Windows Update is installed"... but the problem
    continues. I hope you will find this case very challenging to discover
    another solution and to help me to download the updates of Windows that I am
    missing. . Probably the problem is the lack of authorization of scripts. I
    don't know. Thanks a lot and regards from Pamplona, San Fermines, Hemingway,
    etc... Ricardo Leiva

  15. To avoid confusion, please begin a new thread about your specific problems.
    State your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., Vista x64 SP1) in your
    first post.

    PS: You can't use http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com to update Vista, d00d.

    When I am trying to update Windows Vista it wont update. When I try to update
    Windows Defender it wont update. On both of them I cannot update manually
    neither. It's like my computer does not want to talk to nothing at all.
    Please email me at if someone can help me.

  19. To fix this error open "internet explore/tools/internet
    options/connections/LAN settings" make sure "use a proxy server for your lan"
    is unchecked and have "automatically detect settings" checked. This worked
    for me.
     
    ---xXNateXx---, Jan 25, 2010

  20. QED: Now did the former get checked & the latter unchecked to begin with?
