    Hi, i've tried the solutions in the XP section to this error, but no joy.
    Anyone know what to do? Every time I click on 'check for updates' the screen changes to 'checking for updates' then a moment later says 'windows could not search for new updates' and Error found 80070424.

    if i put regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll into run, i get this error msg:
    (in a RegSvr32 window) The module "wuaueng.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

    any help much appreciated!

    i'm still floundering on this one. no one got any suggestions please?

    i've turned user account control off, and regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll has 'succeeded', but this has made no difference. i still have error 80070424 when trying to search for new updates, in windows update.

    ??? please help! by the number of views of this thread i believe i'm not alone :/

    Try asking in the Windows Updates newsgroup.

    'An update is available to fix a Background Intelligent Transfer Service
    (BITS) crash on a Windows Vista-based computer'

    I just sat on the phone for over 2 hours with hp tech support while they
    tried to fix this through remote link. after 2 hours it still wasn't
    fixed but I decided to do a system wipe and start fresh after backing up
    any data i want to keep (itunes and photos mainly, only had the laptop a
    month). We did determine the cause for me at least. turns out i
    improperly uninstalled Norton while setting up the computer as it had a
    30 day trial preloaded so rather than mess around with a trial of
    something i didn't want i went to the control panel to uninstall it
    when i should have gone to Norton's website to download their
    uninstaller tool..... i know this was an old thread but it was one of
    very few that actually turned up on google that dealt with this error on
    Vista almost every other post was to do with Win XP so i felt i'd add my
    experience to help any one else who might be going through this problem.

    Help! I have this very error problem, but where I found this issue comes from my automatic updates won't turn on. I tried the BITS link, but received the message that it was not needed.

    I really don't know what else to try!

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!! That worked!!!!

    is a sp3 XP home edition system still susceptible to be updated
    automatically, or is it because there is NO such option for such SP3 home
    system that the automatic update is not working, and then an error message
    like 80070424 followed by a 70005 is "just" a normal situation ?,,, === by
    the way, running a Hijackthis software, a line described a problem as follows
    ...."Service: Actualizaciones automáticas (wuauserv) - Unknown owner -
    %fystemroot%\system32\svchost.exe (file missing)" so is there another
    "better reason" to NOT have the update option available and receiving error
    messages if such file is "missing"? If so, is was) there a bug or a
    hijack or worm any kind to destroy such missing file ? or is it just
    "normal", and we should just buy a Vista OS instead to get an "update"?
