Windows automatic updates stopped working and gave me the error code
WindowsUpdate_80072F78. After following the help instructions to empty the
update catch I restarted my laptop.

Now it's not letting me check for updates and giving me error: 6811507. The
next recomended step is to start a thread for help. I have no idea, I'm lost.
Will you please help me if you can?

You haven't included enough information to figure out what you're trying to
download. (The thread to which you are replying has expired from the news server.)

Geez, the questions are getting vaguer and the hijacking of old threads more
common !

See: You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use
Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates
