  • Windows Automatic Update Error 80072EFD - After new HD installation by Toshiba

    The hard drive went in my computer and I got it repaired at Toshiba Service centre. Four weeks later and it wont update windows which now causes web site security certificate errors with itunes, banks and paying for items on the web. I have called Toshiba and told them when I got it back it doesn't work correctly and they say its not there problem! Windows worked fine before the hard drive re-install.
    I have tried nearly every suggestion on windows forums out there and tried to install the windows fix it tool but it wont let me on my laptop. I have also tried installing the Intel driver that people recommend but that also doesn't work. I have malware scanned the system as suggested by Microsoft it still wont work.
    I keep getting windows error code 80072ED. The only thing i havent done which was suggested by toshiba was do a re-install by holding 0 key when rebooting the computer but I dont want to lose my hard drive and wipe it all. Im using windows 7 home premium. Somebody please help.

    the old hard drive was removed and a new hard drive installed and the computer re configured to out of the box state. I dont think the windows update has worked since I got it back from Toshiba.
    If it's just back from the Toshiba shop and doesn't work right before making changes, you should return it.
    That error code indicates a network configuration problem. Do you have other problems on the internet?\
    Do you have more than one anti-virus program resident in memory?

  • Windows update error 80072EFD

    I have a 2 month old P750 laptop, after needing to do a restore from a drive back up, I now get the error above.
    I then decided to do a toshiba recovery with a clean install and again get the same result of windows update not being able to connect to the server.
    I have tried everything I can find for this error including checking the proxy settings for WU, reseting the proxy settings via CMD prompt.
    I did notice something interesting while checking validation using the microsoft MGA diagnostic tool, where windows was listed as genuime but of note were some interesting reports like:
    Validation code : 0
    LegitCheckControl : N/A, hr=0x80070002
    signed : N/A, hr=0x80070002
    My understanding is the 0x80070002 means it couldn't connect the same as WU or that files are missing.
    I have rebuilt the softwaredistribution folders as recommended, disabled all firewalls, removed antivirus / malware software but still no luck.
    It seems funny how the same thing happens even after a clean toshiba disk recovery.
    Any suggestions?

    If you check Google and error code 80072EFD you will find numerous pages where you can find explanations why should be done about that.
    This is typical Microsoft issue and solution must be searched by Microsoft.

  • I downloaded the latest important update to windows vista yesterday, and since then Firefox crashes very soon after enetering the portal of any website I visit, and I want to know if the windows vista update could be doing this?

    Yesterday (23rd March) my computer appeared to perform an auto update of windows vista and since then every time time use firefox it crashes shortly after entering a web portal (after about 1-5 seconds). It even crashes on the BBC news page which I always use to check stability. I have been using Firefox for years and it has just started doing this. However, I examined the programme files and actaully cannot see a windows vista update for yesterday, but I can see that there was a Firefox update, so now I'm a bit confused. Looking at the program files in more details it appears that there was a very major update of Firefox taking place including lots of file extensions. You should also know that your password recovery process doesn't work. I never got the email that is supposed to help me recover a lost password. I am really disappointed with Firefox doing this. It's costing me time and money. Can you help before I give up and go back to using Windows explorer (ugh!). I have thought of simply removing Firefox and starting again with a new download but that might not solve the probelm and I will lose my bookmarks.

    I have an update to my message posted yesterday regarding Firefox crash after vista update. Today it got worse when Firefox wouldn't open at all and Windows explorer also stopped working. Curiously, email was still working, and when I checked another (little used) account on the same PC, I got a perfect connection with Firefox and Explorer. I had to conclude that the latest updates of Vista have interacted with some application only found in my main account on the PC. I tried opening Firefox in its safe mode and I tried opening explorer without Plug ins, but neither worked. Finally I decided the only answer was to do a system restore and wind back the windows software to where it was before the problem. I now have Firefox and explorer restored to working order, but I still don't understand why, because I got a message saying the system restore hasn't worked. Full Comprehension of the cause is beyond my capability, but through trial and error as described above I seem to have fixed it. The suspect vista updates are KB2505189 , and KB2524375.

  • T61 no sound after Windows (Vista) update (?)

    I have purchased a T61 in December 2007. The sound has always been low and now i have no sound at all.  I cannot hear files locally or on the Net -- or any of the computer sounds.
    i realize now that it has happened after a Windows (Vista) update.  I have done every step but 6.
    I have Speakers (SoundMax Integrated Digital HD Audio). The sound keeps defaulting to to Line 2 Muv Enum (Virtual Cable).
    >> Update -- perhaps this will help someone else. After doing steps 1-5 (at support link), I redid step #3 and now it's working.

  • Windows Vista Update posts 64bit driver for Qosmio F30 32bit Vista

    Today I've noticed that Windows Vista update is posting the wrong update for one of Qosmio F30 drivers.
    I have Windows Vista 32Bit but Windows Update post a 64bit version of the driver.
    see the screenshot [Here|]
    Any idea?

    hmm... this is strange ?:|
    The Toshiba x64 ACPI compliant driver means definitely a 64bit version!!!
    I dont know why the Vista driver update notification reports an 64bit driver for a 32bit OS but usually the 64bit driver shouldn't be compatible with the 32bit OS.
    However, the case seems to be clear dont install it if the driver is not designed for your OS.

  • Windows vista recovery error CTOERROR.flg and following that error 0x643 while installing update

    Hi All
    system info : HP LAPTOP DV6 -1256tx , windows vista sp1 32 bit
    When I am trying to install windows vista sp1 from recovery disks/partition I am getting the error from recovery manager prompting me to choose either to retry or see the details for failure : CTOERROR.flg in form of notepad on my desktop. I have done retry 100 times but to no avail. I cannot restart after this recovery failure message as it shows dialog box on restart: windows security update is not installed successfully or is not trusted.So, i have to go through recovery process again to see the desktop (everything functioning - internet,video, music all) but only once.
    Last time i got this message too . When i did installing windows from recovery disks few months back, that time  i figured out to install all imp. updates  through  automatic  windows update.All the updates were installed successfully and then it restarted and gone through process of language settings,time settings and all....
    But this time when i am trying to update windows, i am getting windows update error 0x643 which is for security update for .net framewrok 3.5 sp1 and family update.I do know the answer how to get away with this error from "windows help" and also from this forum too, which asks for installing .net framework updates from windows update site directly. But the problem is:
     Windows update ask me to restart after automatic or manual windows update installation takes place and restart causes problem as it shows dialog box - windows security update is not installed successfully . I need to install all updates in one go like last time from my understanding.:
    1. So if i install windows update (to try my luck as last time) it shows 0x643 error for .net framework and asks to restart and after that when i try to manually install failed updated 0x643 it asks me to restart the windows for pending updates.
    2. Alternatively, If i try to install failed update first just after recovery failure it won't allow me to install important updates for vista sp1 and asks to restart windows.
    All i need is to successfully update all updates through windows automatic update which is not happening at the moment.
    Not even able to upgrade to sp2 bcz it too restarts for installing.
    Please Help.
    Thanks in advance.

  • Windows Vista Activation Error KB948465 - Best Fix?

    I have had a Dell Inspiron Desktop 530 S since 2009, it came preinstalled and activated with Windows Vista SP2.  In 2011, the hard drive developed a problem and working with Dell, we reinstalled the OS.  I have been running without any issues since
    then, and just this past Sunday, April 19th, 2015 when I booted up in the morinng, I got a black screen, and a notification in the lower right corner = "Windows Vista (TM), Build 6002, This copy of Windows is not Genuine".
    I had made no software or hardware changes, to precipitate this, though I did see two windows updates had occurred the day before.  I have had Dell attempt to resolve this issue and they could not, I have had 1st and 2nd Tier at Microsoft try, including
    replacing the OEM SLP with the COA SLP from the placard on my computer via telephone IVR.  An MS technician did the telephone activation for me.  All efforts by MS or Dell have left me getting error "0XC004E003" when attempting to activate
    the OS using the product key from the placard on my computer.  That error I understand indicates a problem accessing or reading the SLIC table in the BIOS.  MS insists my only solution is to reinstall the OS from my diskette and then of course resinstall
    all software, etc., and I am looking for a better solution.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

  • Windows Vista Bonjour error "You do not have sufficient access..."

    My Windows Vista laptop recognizes my HP PSC 1310 printer connected as a USB printer with Airport Extreme. It even has the correct driver. When i go to finish set up i get an error "You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer". I am doing this as an admin on my PC. The printer works correctly on my Macbook. The guidance given by apple is no help at all. Any ideas?

    I experienced the same general problem and did find a manual workaround in my particular instance. Hopefully this is helpful to anyone who's facing the same situation.
    MY SETUP: installing a hp LaserJet 1012 that's tethered to a wireless Time Capsule (home network) on a virtual VISTA platform running within Parallels 4.0.3810 on an iMac OS 10.5.6.
    THE PROBLEM: WinXP (also virtual) connected to the printer through BONJOUR FOR WINDOWS without any problems. However, doing the same in Vista resulted in a last step termination of installation with the following message from Vista: "You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer." Lovely.
    Turns out, according to Microsoft (link: Help and Support Article ID: 946394 - Last Review: January 24, 2008), the problems is due to "the Hewlett-Packard (HP) print driver uses an HPBmini.dll file ("HP Mini Installer") whose version is earlier than"
    My workaround was to simply install the network printer manually via ~ (the following are the choices that I clicked on in VISTA)
    Vista Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Printers > Add a printer >
    Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer >
    The printer that I want isn't listed >
    Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname >
    CHOOSE - Device type: Autodetect
    INPUT - Hostname or IP address: "Time-Capsule"
    (which is the specific hostname in my case, the hostname can be found by going to OS X System Preference > Print & Fax > click & highlight the printer installed on the local network in OS X and look for the hostname after "Location:". Remember, Windows do not do spaces, so if there are any spaces in your hostname be sure to substitute a dash "-".
    SELECT - "Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use" >
    Device Type > Standard | Generic Network Card > Install the printer driver* >
    (*Here's the tricky step, since you don't want to use an old driver which would bring up that old insufficient access message, but you do have some options:
    a) you have a known VISTA COMPATIBLE driver from the manufacturer (net downld);
    b) the "Add Printer Wizard" window may contain a driver for your specific printer or a similar printer. Also, try the "Windows Update" button to refresh the choices if you can't find it the first time; and finally,
    c)"Generic" is a legitimate choice in the Manufacturer window if you can't find any better options.)
    From there, it's just Next > Next > and choose to share printer, etc. to finish up.
    Luckily, I got through to "Print a test page" and it all works without the annoying "insufficient access" message.
    Best of luck to you.

  • Can't install iTunes in windows vista x64 (error 0x80070002)

    I have been encountering some trouble when trying to install iTunes in my Windows Vista 64-bit PC. When I attempt to install it, it gaves me a HRESULT: 0x80070002 error. I have been looking on the internet for a solution to this and have already tried everything. I also have the same error code when trying to make Windows updates.
    I was wondering if there is a solution to this problem or do I have to reinstall my OS to get it right.

    I think it would be a good idea to scan for malware as malware often interferes with Windows Update.
    Download Malware bytes and run a full scan, there is a free version:
    In services, check the Window Update service. It should show as "started" and start up type automatic.
    The other thing is to run the system file checker:
    This will attempt to fix problems and if it will not run, that is another clue to the problem.

  • HT5318 Windows vista R6034 error/Error7 1114

    how do I rectify the 2 error codes above ?
    on Windows Vista

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.
