    Winhttp SendRequest/ReceiveResponse failed with 0x2ee7 error.
    Either the proxy server or target server name can not be resolved.
    Stop/Restart service or reboot the machine if you see this error frequently.

    When searching for available updates on the Windows Update site, you
    receive the
    0x8024402C, 0x80240030 or 0x8024502d error


    (check if you have WuWebcontrolclass if youdo it must be enabled
    c:\windows\Downloaded Program Files)


    Check your firewall settings it may be blocking,
    Turn off any web filters, ( popups etc.)
    check for spyware, adware

    look at:
    You receive an "Error 0x80072EE2" or "Error 0x80072EFD" error message
    when you try to use Windows Update


    check your proxy setting if any.
    proxycfg setting view
    proxycfg -d deactivate
    proxycfg -u copy setting from IE

    How do I ensure that WuWebcontrolclass is enabled?

    I tried doing everything that was outlined in this newsgroup and in the
    knowledge base. None worked. However, the following did work for me:

    In Internet Explorer type in the following url;
    From the left-hand sidebar choose Windows updates and install recommended

    After installing the recommended updates, I rebooted and was able to use
    Windows update again. I hope this works for others in the same situation as

    Another solution: for me under w2000/ no proxy/ Zone Alarm...

    Another person noted that Svchost.exe was involved. So I enabled


    thorough the Zone Alarm firewall as both client and server, and that soleved
    it for me. Cheers

    I have not been able to update since december 2007, and have spent hours
    trying everything to fix error code "8024402C," even trying to call customer
    service for help (after spending a hour on hold, and hitting a million
    buttons, I was told to call Toshiba. The only solution I found was to never
    buy Microsoft again...My next computer will be a Mac.

  7. Things change. ; } Notice that the original post for this thread
    is over 4 years old. And in the number of months that are represented
    by the post you are replying to the MUC site changed and new operating
    systems were produced too. (Besides only implying your problem symptom
    you haven't disclosed your OS which is always a helpful thing to do.)
