    error code 0x80070422

    This is windows XP computer and ma facing a small problem with windows updates. The icon in the system tray says that my Windows Update is disabled though it is enabled. I checked it twice. Later I thought to update windows defender but that to ended up with an error code 0x80070422.

    Few people said that my system has got some virus or malware, but I scanned my system twice with Mcafee and registry patrol, they didnít found anything.

    Can anyone here help me out please?
