[Vista x86] System restore used, now Windows Updates fail to insta

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Henry Gabryjelski, Jul 18, 2007.

  1. Recently (today), I had to use system restore to a July 10th restore point.
    I was quite happy that it worked, and of course WU decided to re-advertise
    the updates since the restore point.

    Unfortunately, a large number of these updates have failed to apply. The
    "history" pane shows the following KB articles as failing to apply:

    937077 936357 935807
    935280 933928 929916

    I can provide the WindowsUpdate.log file, or any other relevant log file
    portions. Can you please let me know what else I can do to diagnose and
    solve this issue?


    I've looked at %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log, and the following items were the
    only odd items:

    (these four lines repeat quite often:)
    Misc WARNING: GetServerFileTime failed. error 0x80072f76
    Misc WARNING: WinHttp: IsFileToBeDownloaded failed with 0x80072f76
    Misc WARNING: WinHttp: ShouldFileBeDownloaded failed with 0x80072f76
    failed. error 0x80072f76
