Vista wants to install an update but it just fails with the error message

Code 80072EFD Windows Update encountered a problem

What do I do?

I havent even got SP1 yet so i really need to do some updates

Try to update again and when you get the error message come up click on the number 80072EFD and it should give you further information and a link, possibly, to a fix.

it says that i need to add 3 sites to the firewall allowed list. But i am using windows firewall. I did have comodo but i uninstalled it but in windows security centre that it is on and active when it is uninstalled

you could try reinstalling comodo and then uninstall again as comodo can be a pig to get rid of,and reboot after uninstalling it.another thing to try and get rid of comodo is revo uninstallerclick here

You could reinstall Comodo.
Then turn it off so it's not running before you uninstall it again.
Hopefully that will work.
