After getting all new updates today from Windows Update today and they
installed with no problems. I went back and selected custom updates to see
if there where any other updates and I am now getting the same error you
are.

RE: 0x8024400D

By PUC_Snakeman:

"Got this error message (and several other Windows Update and Microsoft
Update
error messages) on multiple computers after manually updating them via
Microsoft Update. I updated them via Microsoft Update, restarted, visited
Microsoft Update (to verify 0 updates left), and encountered this error.

The FIX, which may also work for many other Windows/Microsoft Update related
bugs, is to...
1) Close all IE Windows
2) Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Delete Temporary Internet Files
3) Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Services -> Stop the "Automatic Updates"
service
4) Delete everything in "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore"
5) Delete everything in "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download"
6) Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Services -> START the "Automatic Updates"
service

Then visit the Microsoft Update page again, and everything should be fine.
These steps have cured all my auto-update woes before, so I help someone
finds them useful."


Well, instead of doing all that, the empty temporary files reminded me to
use the Disk Cleanup utility. Simple enough, that's how I fixed my problem.

In my case, I got the same error and didn't realize I had not turned off
the pop-up blocker on the Google taskbar. WU worked perfectly fine after
that.
