Yes I am experiencing the same problem. Automatic Updates in the Control
Panel says Auto Updates are turned on, but I cannot download any. I also do
not see Automatic Updates listed in the services.msc file.

Please try the following:

Click Start >> Run >>
Type the follow command in the Open box.
"net.exe stop wuauserv" (w/o quotes)
Press Ok

Repeat the same for the following commands:

regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll
regsvr32.exe wups.dll
regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
regsvr32.exe MSXML3.dll
regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll
regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll
net.exe start wuauserv

Restart the machine and try again.

Thanks a lot Torgeir, it worked! Which is a lot more than I can say for what
Microsoft Online Assisted Support told me to do.

Re: Yikes! Error message 80070424

Hi, I am having the same problem and tried the same suggestion but still I am
having problems. After executing these lines, I go back and checked if
automatic program is displayed and enabled at services.msc. I can see it but
with the disable status. Tried to enable the program but I get a message
that says that it cant change the status for the program is marked for
deletion. Therefore I can't continue and can't run the windows update
program.

Any suggestion to this matter?

Re: Yikes! Error message 80070424

See if this helps:

Start regedit.exe and locate the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv

If you find a DeleteFlag value there, delete the DeleteFlag value.

Re: Yikes! Error message 80070424

it's been months that i'm trying to solve the windows update problem with no
luck. I even requested HP assistant and no luck until i came across your tip.
I went step by step in the command box, entered all the commands, i
restarted the computer and all is well now...........

Thanks from Israel...and keep up with the good tips

Re: Yikes! Error message 80070424

I seem to have a problem with automatic updates resulting in this error. I
tried following the steps which Torgeir initially posted and rebooting, but
still got the same error. On looking for the key in regedit below, but there
is nothing listed at that location for wuauserv (although there was a key for
it in the higher directory ControlSet003).

Any further tips greatly appreaciated!

Re: Yikes! Error message 80070424

Copy that subkey and than create a new one for CurrentControlSet to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\*wuauserv*

Right click wuauserv in CurrentControlSet003 and choose Export.
Save it to the Desktop and name it wuauserv.reg.
Double click wuauserv.reg to Merge the info into the registry.

Restart the system. Did the setting stick this time ?
