Error number: 0x80240036

I have a Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition with Service Pack 1 connected
to a 10mbit line. Everything works fine, web and sql... etc... only Windows
Update is giving me problems.

When I visit Windows Update and I select Custom or Express the green
progress bar keeps loading forever (I've tried it for hours).

When I click on the link (Upgrade to Microsoft Update. Automatically receive
updates for Windows, Office and more) on the right hand side) I am presented
with a welcome screen to the 'new windows update'. I click the Start Now
button, accept the license agreement and then I receive: [Error number:
0x80240036]
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.

I have tries to clear all temporary internet files and delete all the
objectx (the folder with activex components like flash etc.) But still no
luck.

I cannot remember when this first happend. I have been having this error for
at least weeks now.

How can I fix thus problem?

RE: Error number: 0x80240036

I installed the updates from the 14th of june manually by downloading them
and installing them. I then rebooted my machine and now the windows update
websites works again. I also removed the java runtime from my system before
the reboot and reinstalled a newer version after the reboot. So this also
could be part of the problem.

Try to download and install the patches manualy and reboot and see if it
works. If you still have problems try removing the java runtime and reboot
and see if this fixes the problem.

Kind regards,

Philip Wagenaar

I had the same problem and i can confirm that is not the genuine
validation of windows. The only way to solve this problem was to
update java runtime... :)

Re: Error number: 0x80240036

If updating Java doesn't work you may want to check your windows update service. If it is completely disabled on your machine you will get error 0x80240036

at windows update.

How to fix:

Start -> Run...

type:

services.msc

press enter

right click on: automatic updates

choose: properties

click the Log on tab

make sure Local system account is checked

make sure profile 1 is Activated

click General tab

make sure start type is Automatic

make sure Service status is started. If it is not click start.

windows update should now work :-)

Re: Error number: 0x80240036

Judging from similar posts here in the past month or so, the behavior may be
due to a Vundo-ZLOB-SDBot infection, all of which is protected by a rootkit.

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.

Re: Error number: 0x80240036

I'm developing a program that interfaces with Windows Update Agent (WUA).

When debbuging, I got a lot of 0x80240036 errors, when I tried to download a patch that were already downloaded.

So, I suppose that if you delete all files from:
%WinDir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download maybe WU should work

Hope it helps
