    I went to download/install the latest updates for Win 7 64-bit and it went well except for update 976325. Nearly halfway( 45% )into installation i received an 80072f78 error. My time/date/location is correct....at first location was off. Did a netsh reset thinking maybe winstock, but problem is still there. Tried reboots, shutdowns and earlier snapshots o_O
    BTW...I scanned with a few anti-malware programs and nothing showed.

    Hi rainwalker :)
    You could have a look here for a possible cause to your update problem

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

    It seems this update( KB976325) I am having problems with is for Windows Server 2003. I am not using a server. Kb 976325 is not compatible with my machine. Why would Win Update think i needed the update o_O

    I understood it to be a Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8, but when i went MS Download Center and did a search i saw nothing for Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8. Saw only KB976325 server updates. Went back a third time, after your post, and saw it immediately. I know how this reads :(.......anywhy, thanks ronjor. Got it installed...I'm happy.
