How does it manifest?
When Windows tries to run the update service, the update 0x80072ee2-0x80072efd error code appears and terminates the update service. Since this error is rare, Microsoft concluded that this is not caused by Windows. Rather, it is due to lack of computer maintenance.
What caused this?
Every Windows operating system has a registry. The registry holds information about your computer and determines your computer performance. Did you notice that after a short period of time, your computer no longer works as fast as it used to be? This is caused by invalid entries that exist in your system registry. These entries might exist because of software you no longer using or software that was not properly removed. Note that adware & spyware will always cause damage to your windows registry. Even though they are properly removed, they will always leave a broken registry.
A broken windows registry will not only cause this windows update 0x80072ee2-0x80072efd error code. Here are few examples:
- PC keeps crashing
- PC needs frequent rebooting
- Unable to remove a program
- Unable to load *.dll errors
- Cannot find *.exe errors
- PC runs slower than when you first bought it
This will become worse if you do not repair it.
How do I repair this?
Some people might attempt to repair their windows registry on their own. I highly not recommend this unless you are a professional. Editing it without proper knowledge can render your windows operating system unusable. Hiring a technician to do it for you is too expensive. You can scan your computer using the registry cleaner for free, and find out what is wrong easily.
By using a registry cleaner, you will not only repair the Windows Update 0x80072ee2-0x80072efd Error Code. You will also clean your registry from any unnecessary information that slows down your computer. This will also prevent crashes and error messages. Your computer will be much faster in the end!
