    Windows Update Error Code 80072F78

    Hi, Please help,

    I recently re-installed windows on my Toshiba laptop and I'm trying to update windows. The reason I re-installed

    was because I got the same message.

    The Error Code I get is 80072F78. Image 2.jpgImage 1.jpgImage 3.jpg

    The possible reason is that I was living in Australia when I bought my laptop and I am now

    living in Bekasi, Jakarta, Indonesia.

    Thank you in advance.

    Are the date and time correct on your PC?

    Are you running any other anti-virus software other than MSE?

    Have you tried the troubleshooter link at Windows Update error 80072f78?

    There are many more links to check at Bing search - Windows Update Error Code 80072F78

    Thanks JoeP517,

    The problem was with a public network firewall setting I just had to turn it off.

    I'll just have to remember to turn it on when I use a public network.

    After a couple of hours searching I found the solution.

    Cheers,

    Glad you got it resolved. Thanks for posting back.

    Would you mind posting the exact firewall change? It may help others in the future.
