The other day, a client of mine had a Windows XP machine that could not get its Windows Updates from Microsoft. The following error appeared:
Error Code 0x80072F8F
Not sure how it happens but apparently, the date and time on the PC is so different from the Windows Update site that the error appears.
The solution is quite simple and is listed on Microsoft's website. Apparently, this must be a normal issue if there is an entire support page for it. It even happens on Windows Vista.
I will be posting more of these type of problems/solutions in the next few days. It has been a busy few days at work and there have been lots of issues that I have not seen before.
Stay tuned for some more Windows XP troubleshooting tips.
