Windows Update fails with error 0x80072EE2


Had a problem with a Windows 2003 Server that would not update automatically or if I tried manually. Found the solution from the web site below which was to switch the Windows Firewall on and then back off or vice versa. Bizarrely this fixed the error and Windows was able to update.
