I need help in trying to get rid of error code 80072F8F as I have not had any updates since 19/11/14. I have tried everything I know and I have been on Microsoft QA but the answer to my problem is too technical for me as I'm bound to mess up.It recommends that one needs to remove Microsoft Update and Bits then reinstall them.Surely there is a much more easier way? Your views on this would be appreciated. Regards. A. XXXXX
I have tried to download updates without success.
Yes, I carried out your instructions and when I tried to download up dates I received " Windows could not search for updates"
Richard, I changed the Proxy settings and tried to Download updates, it came back as above.
I check the time and date first thing and all is correct
Hi Richard,I've just finished completing your last assignment and the end result is still the same.
The error started on the 15 November 2014
HERE IS THE INFO YOU WANT
MY ID XXX
Richard, I still have Team viewer open and I do not have a new password. I've lost half of my desk top including my email and at the moment I'm using my laptop.I see at the bottom of the connection that it waiting authentication and the only password ***** that is 1 6 3 7 which I believe was the one I sent before?
You can still contact me on my laptop using email *****@******.***
Hi Richard,many thanks for your help with my problem.I tried what you suggested regarding Windows Repair, but that was unable to resolve the problem, so I did a complete disk clean and re-installed the O/S and all's well now.Back to normal.
You worked hard and I fully appreciate what you did,many thanks and all the best.
