Workaround for error code 80072EFD download critical updates failed
I want to post a solution, hope it helps someone else.
This was the problem:
after installation of XP SP2 we cannot download and install critical
windows updates. Got error code 80072EFD.
XP Workstation SP2
Internet Explorer browse via internal proxy server, ISA 2000
Firewall allows only proxy to surf the internet
- go to services, stop the service microsoft firewall
- go to system control > security center > automatic updates.
set it to active
change the setting to notify, no automatic download and
Then download with proxy behind will work.
Hope it helps!
