Hi, i found this article for your problem on Microsoft website :
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/Windows-Update-error-80072efe-or-80072f76

If that didn't help, come back again Smile I'm pretty sure your AV or Windows Defender don't let you update your computer, that's what that error mean. If you already have Avira, than you should disable Windows Defender. It's easy to do, check this post :

I hope it helps.

thanks i tried one of the fixes and its now running OK Its just that i cant figure out why windows defender has to run other than because it has the firewall protection yet it asks to install your own anitvirus protection.

Windows Defender is just default protection module of Windows operating system. You don't have really to use it! Because, Windows also by default have Firewall turned On, Defender is something like - if you don't have money for antivirus, use me!

I also have Windows Defender turned off, and I use Avira Free Edition. Don't have problems yet.
