    0x80070426
    -2147023834
    ERROR_SERVICE_NOT_ACTIVE
    The service has not been started

    Go to Start -< Run, type in Services.msc and press Enter.

    Check the Windows Installer Service - is it set to Manual?

    I found it to be set to manual. I changed it to automatic. It still will not
    load updates.

    Also check that the Automatic Updates service is set to Automatic and
    that the Background Intelligent Transfer Service [BITS] is set to Manual.
    The Windows Installer service need only be set to Manual.

    Are WU and Bits started?

    1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

    2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.

    3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.

    4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

    5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.

    6. In the Startup type list, click Manual, and then click Apply.

    Can not install the downloaded update still. If you have something else that
    I can try, I am very much willing to try.

    Thanks.

    I tried Dial-A-Fix tool and it fixed everything. If anybody wants to try it,
    just google it.

    RE: I keep getting error code 0x80070426 when trying to update Win

    Updating XP with SP2, I got error 0x80070426, at retry, I got error 0x8024D00C.
    I went around error 0x8024D00C by following suggestion for this error code
    in this forum: through "sesrvices.msc" and renaming SoftwareDistribution
    folder.

    The second time I got error 0x80070426, I submitted the error report, and
    got another suggestion back saying that the problem was caused by Internet
    Explorer. The recommendation was to install high-priority updates but I had
    done that already.

    So the next logical step was to update IE first, when attempting to update
    to IE7 (I am using IE6 with its SP1) , the site asked for XP with SP2 !! So
    now I am in a chicken and egg situation.

    I tried the Dial-a-fix once but I did not know what I was doing: there was
    a bunch of check boxes, and I didn't know what to check or uncheck.

    Any suggestion?
