    Since installing the 6 security updates of April 13th
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - April 2005 (KB890830)
    Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB890859)
    Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP Service Pack
    2 (KB890923)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB893066)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB893086)

    I have been unable to manually access the Windows Update site I receive the
    error 0x80072EE2. I encounter this on 4 XP Pro machines running SP-2. All
    access the internet via a 2000 server running Win Route Pro. This server also
    had the 6 updates installed as did the other machines. The systems also
    cannot access certain secure sites, I was not able to make this post from one
    of them for example, some other web pages time out, MusicMatch Jukebox will
    not access the online music database, Outlook and IE 6 will not access my
    Hotmail accounts, and numerous other pages won't work. Oddly some secure
    pages do work some do not. I have tried pretty much everything in Google
    Groups, Deja, MS KB, Tech Net, and the groups here. I have also opened ports
    80 and 443 in my firewall per one of these posts. I am concerned that this
    worked prior to these updates and don't want ot be playing with my firewall
    settings and such. They have always worked before this. Any help would be
    appreciated. Thanks.

    As I stated previouslyI have tried all of the available fixes at MS
    Knowledgebase (KB), Tech Net, Google, and Deja. Thanks for your reply though.

    I was in the same situation. I unistalled Update KB893066 and things came
    back to normal.

    Jece I unistalled Update KB893066 from the server and attempted to update on
    a system running an XP Pro fresh install not even SP1. I cannot connect to
    update and get the same error and I cannot activate the XP software either. I
    am going to reinstall the security update on my server since it didn't
    correct my issue. I would add for anyone else who might want to take a whack
    at this that the 2000 Server system acting as the gateway seems unaffected by
    any of this. For example I am using it to access the sites the XP systems
    won't. For example to make a post here. :D

    The machine I experinced the problem with is an XP Home with SP2. Since
    automatic update is turned on, today it reinstalled KB893066, blocking my
    capability to login to hotmail, yahoo mail or run windows update. Unistalling
    it again solved the problem.

    I guess it is not the same for XP Pro or non-SP2 machines.
