    Hello

    I have a problem trying to get Windows updates working.

    I experience Error number: 0x80072EE2 everytime I go to the update site.
    Now this error is listed in http://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527/ and there
    seems to be a problem with my hosts file. I get that info from
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883821 where it says "The 0x80072EE7 error
    code may occur when the client computer tries to resolve a URL for the
    Windows Update Web site and cannot find the correct IP address. This error
    may occur if the Hosts file contains a static IP address."

    I had the localhost definition (127.0.0.1 localhost) in my hosts file and
    some comment lines before it. I took the localhost definition out and I have
    rebooted and still not got anywhere with it. I still get this error.

    Can anyone out there help me solve this problem?

    Regards

    Lesley
