Am hoping someone can help!

I keep getting an error message 80072efd when my computer tries to update. It hasn't updated since April!

I have tried the troubleshooting tips but they don't seem to help. I have Norton 360 and to be honest have no idea how to sort out the firewall settings!!

I have installed and run Ccleaner including the registry cleaner but this also doesn't seem to have helped!!

Does anyone have any idea what I can try next??

Do NOT click on Ex plorer's link site has bad reputation for phishing, scam, malware etc. (WOT report)

Regcure is known as a scam program and people who promote it are usually on commission (you click on their link to it and they get paid)

Hi sorry about the link I posted earlier I had know idea it was phishing or scam site, I do not have any connection with it what so ever.
I post on PCA quite often to give help and advice once again my apologies.

ok Ex plorer, no probs, but it is an example of danger of recommending sites and programs that we have no personal knowledge of.

This is the Web Of Trust browser add on that I use click here not 100% proof but better than nothing.
