Hi All.. I have resolved the problem regarding Error code 0x80072F8F when trying to Update Windows Vista or to use Windows defender on my Inspiron 530. I have downloaded a program called Malwarebytes! anti-Malware. This program has ressolved my Error code messages and i was able to down load the lastest updates into my PC. Hope this will help other users.
