Windows update error: 0x80072ee2

Ran into this little gem today and figured out the solution:

1) open up services.

start -> control panel -> administrtive tools -> services

2) stop the automatic updates and background intelligent transfer service.

3) remove the c:\windows\softwaredistribution folder

4) restart the automatic updates and background intelligent transfer service.

5) rerun windows update.
