Verify that BITS is correctly configured and started:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
3. In the Startup type box, click Manual, and then click Apply.
4. Click the Log On tab, and then verify that the service is enabled in every
hardware profile that is listed. If the service is disabled in one or more hardware
profiles, click the hardware profile, click Enable, and then click Apply.
5. Click the General tab, and then click Start.

If that's all okay, then perhaps:-

1. Click Start.
2. Choose Run.
3. In the Run box, type (pressing okay after the command) :-
Regsvr32 QMGR.DLL

If that didn't help, then perhaps reinstall the Background Intelligent Transfer
Service, follow these steps
You receive a "Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the
requested page" error message when you try to install an update

I follow all the solution already, but still cant update my windows. The
website page always show [Error number: 0x80070424].

RE: [Error number: 0x80070424]

0x80070424 ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST BITS service is deleted.

80070424 usually means that the BITS service (required by Windows Update) is
not running.

Have a look at this articles. It may be relevant to your problem.

The above explanation was for a previous Version of BITS but, there has been
an update for BITS since Vista came out.

Is BITS disabled ? It can be set to Manual and the system will update
successfully but, will not update if BITS is Disabled.
Suggest you run the BITS Repair Tool to see if that helps resolve the issue
after installing the update for it:

Can't fix BITS - Windows Updat

It seems possible that your Windows installation has been deliberately
damaged by a trojan so as to prevent you updating your system or removing
the trojan.

Your first priority must be to cleanse your PC of all malware.

It is futile trying to update your Windows XP system for so long as it is
being subverted by malware.

If you do not know how to cleanse your PC of malware, then take
it to an expert who does. If that is not possible, then your only option is
to re-format the hard disk and install a fresh copy of XP, then apply XP
Service Pack 2, then apply all pending Windows Updates.
