Hi.  I am having issues running Microsoft Update on a Windows 2003 Server.
The server is Running Exchange 2003.  The following is an excerpt from the
first line of the log:

SendRequestToServerForFileInformation failed with 0x80072eef

The "0x80072eef" error shows up in the upper right hand corner of my browser
window when I try to run "Critical Updates" from the Microsoft Update site.
I have found very little info on this error with the exception of the fact
that it somehow relates to a proxy server issue.

It would be very much appreciated if somebody could point me in the right
direction of resolving this.  Thank You, J
