Unable to update windows, keep getting error code 80072efe. Have tried isolating firewall, anti-virus, without success. Also have deleted catroot folder2 in system 32. Still i am unable to update. If anyone has had this problem and knows the fix i will be very grateful. This error code also prevents updating of anti-virus and spyware.My last microsoft update was in May, so things getting critical now. My system, windows 7 , home premium

Plasterdude was spot on. I downloaded and installed the TDSSKILLER which scanned my comp, found the culprit and removed it, now everthing back to normal. Like to say a big thank you to plaserdude.
