    Ensure that your date and time are set correctly, this is usually windows
    genuine failing to complete because it fails if the date and time aren't
    correct.

    Hi - found the same error this morning (Dec 9 2008).
    Messed with all the KB links provided above. Nada. Still error.

    Turns out I had demoted BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service)
    service to Manual, probably in a prior fit of "too dang many services
    running...".
    Started BITS (leaving it Manual).
    Update went fine.
    ---
    Now here is where it starts to get wierd. I did an update on this machine
    about 1.5 weeks ago, it ran fine, and BITS WAS OFF!

    Dear Microsofians - did something change in the recent past where BITS is
    now required for manual IE-initiated updates????

    Same here. Thanks.
    I did exactly what you said in this post, and it worked just fine.
    Very odd indeed.

    OK, same problem with a newly installed HP nx6325.
    XPP+SP3+Office2k3...
    After a few rounds of MS-Update; 0x80072EE2!

    BITS was running but i did a restart of the service and suddenly MS_Update
    is working again!
    Seems as if the BITS-service needed a kick in the butt... ;-)
