    If you are still having trouble after you have tried
    everything, then you will probably find your answer here.

    After trying various KB including KB 883821, I have
    discovered the cause of the infamous 0x8024402C
    error for XP workstations that sit behind ISA firewalls.
    You may only be seeing a 0x80072f78 error because you
    haven't gotten to the update site whereby you get the
    0x8024402C error. Either way, this Technical note may help
    you solve your problem.

    Please see the following web page (URL may wrap to two
    linie but is meant to be one):

    Thanks for that, but i have solved the issue! we had the origional SP2 and
    this caused problems, but i have no whad hte same on a new win XP machine
    with SP1!!
    We got the new SP2 that came out and this solved this.

    I am now led to believe you may have an issue with v5.windows update itself
    as i have got the message from a clean install, i have built over 50 PC's on
    XP and only had this problem since v5 came out.

    Anyway, i will try and sort this new issue out and if i get a solution, i'll
    make a new post with it on.
