Updating your Windows workstation for security patches is very important. So if you receive a 80072ee2 error code, here's how you can fix it.
To add the Windows Update websites to a firewall exceptions list
- Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list. If you use a different firewall, refer to the software publisher's help to see how to add these websites to your firewall exceptions list:
- Open Internet Explorer, go to Settings, then Internet Option.
- In Internet Options, click Security tab. Click the Trusted Sites, click Sites.
- It will prompt you to add the websites to the zone. Add the following URL address one by one.
Check the spelling of the URL addresses to make sure that you're adding the correct website.
Close your Internet Explorer, and try to run the Windows Update again.
