    When I go to the web "Window Update" and choose " Custom" for the choice. The
    web page write this web have problem and the error code is 0x80070424.

    Moreover, the service list in the control panel does not contain the

    Method 1 – Re-register the Windows Update client

    =======================================

    1. Quit all programs that are running.

    2. Click Start, and then click Run.

    3. Type “regsvr32 wuapi.dll” (without the quotation marks), and then click
    OK.

    4. When you receive the “DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded” message,
    click OK.



    REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
    REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL

    See if this helps::
    1. Click Start.
    2. Choose Run.
    3. In the Run box, type (or copy/paste from this post)
    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll (note the space there in the middle)
    4. Click OK.

    After the regsvr32 command, 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.

    As for your OS not being valid you may still have problems with Windows Update

    Visit the Microsoft "how to tell" website: - www.microsoft.com/howtotell
    or
    Two Ways to Find Out if your Copy of Windows is Genuine
    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/h...s/default.mspx
    The report explains why your system was unable to validate, and provides instructions
    for further follow-up.

    No guarantees. It may work for you, or it may not work.

    Back up the registry key if you decide to edit it or create a system restore
    point.
