windows update failed - log shows error 8024402c

tried to download and install two updates after upgrading to XP2 and received
message that update failed during the download phase. The windows update log
shows error 8024402c. How do I fix this?

Hi

If you are behind a Microsoft ISA, this one might be relevant:

XP Windows Update Error 0x8024402C / 0x80072f78 when behind a
Microsoft ISA server
http://www.electrosonics.net/technot...0x8024402C.htm


If the above is not relevant, here are some other things to try:

When searching for available updates on the Windows Update site, you
receive the 0x8024402C, 0x80240030 or 0x8024502d error.
http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...cleid=26&ln=en


You might need to use proxycfg.exe (see link above) to either set
or remove a proxy server configuration:

Open a command prompt (Start/Run and then "cmd.exe" without the
quotes").

Run this command to see what proxy configuration WU uses:

proxycfg


If you don't have a proxy, you will need status

Direct access (no proxy server).


If it reports anything else, to set direct access:

proxycfg -d


To get more help on proxycfg:

proxycfg -?

This has been driving me CraZy, that my new laptop wouldn't update BUT - I found a work-around =)

I was thinking about it.. the MS forum kept sayng it didn't like the proxy settings - even though I use Comcast and there ARE no proxy settings - so here goes..

I went to a page that listed FREE proxy servers - and finally found one that worked:Proxy server 209.55.33.101 port 80 - set my explorer LAN Connection, proxy to that and Microsoft Update WORKS, no 8024402C error.

Use that as a temporary setting because Google search doesn't like it for instance =)
