Windowsupdate error 0x80072F76

When trying Windows Update (www.windowsupdate.com or update.microsoft.com) I got the following error instead of the normal "Express" and "Custom" scan buttons:
The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem.
error 0x80072F76

Along with these entries in %systemroot%\WindowsUpdate.log:
2006-03-18 15:29:28  372 cd0 Misc WARNING: DownloadFileInternal failed for http://update.microsoft.com/v6/windowsupdate/selfupdate/wuident.cab : error 0x80072f76
2006-03-18 15:29:28  372 cd0 WUWeb FATAL: CheckIfClientUpdateNeeded failed: error 0x80072f76


TDS accelerator was enabled and running.  I disabled the TDS download accelerator and was able to scan for updates on Windowsupdate.
