    Allow svchost.exe through your firewall. Worked for me with Sygate
    Personal Firewall Pro.

    I have been having the same problem on a PC. I have tried everything
    regarding this error on knowledge base articles and haven't had any success.
    The PC is using dialup. I have since seen another PC with dialup with the
    same problem. These PCs windows update fine when I plug them into a network
    and do windows update through the network. I need to get windows update to
    work through dialup. I have tried changing the Dialup MTU to 576. Still no
    luck. Could it be the timeout for windows update is too short and is there a
    way to increase it? This problem has only occured since Windows Update v5. it
    was working ok in v4. The two pcs are not running a firewall.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what do you mean by
    "it cannot negotiate though either a passsword-protected proxy, or a SOCKS
    proxy."

    But I have the error 0x80072EE2 when I ask and I don't have any socks file,
    no proxy.
    moreover I've tryed all the recomandation in the Kb or this newsgroup
    Remove Firewall / flushdns / review IE setting / trust site / remove pop up
    blocker / Virus Analyse / Spyware analyse etc...
    I can download the cab suggested in the Microsoft kb but WU v5 does not work
    correctly.
    I mean some time it works, (2% of the time) and sometime it does not work
    (98%) and freeze my connection I have to reboot after. I can't reconnect at
    all.
    All other things works fine on my PC, no problem even with WU v4.
    I don't understand and don't see the link with passsword-protected proxy, or
    a SOCKS proxy.
    Because why it can work some time and 5mn later it does not work.

    This worked for me too, I'm also using Sygate. Might be worth anyone else
    giving it a try.

  10. Try the windowsUpdate V4 instead of V5

    go to the windowsUpdate site, click on "Administrator options",
    "Windows Update Catalog", and click the "Windows Update" link in the
    "See Also" section on the left.

  11. The V4 is still available :

    How to use windowsUpdate V4 instead of V5 : go to the windowsUpdate
    site, click on "Administrator options", "Windows Update Catalog", and
    click the "Windows Update" link in the "See Also" section on the left.
