    Windows can't check for updates

    I have Windows Vista. It started to show "Windows can't check for updates"
    message. Then it says Error found: Code 80240013. I could not find any help
    for this error. Anyone has any idea what I should do?
    OS: Windows Vista Ultimate

    Are you sure that's the correct error?

    Try shutting down and restarting; that worked for me.

    i have the same error.
    It began on April 11, 2008 for no apparent reason.
    The error code is
    Code 80240013

    Rebooting doesn't help. I'm not having any other problems.
    I have Windows Vista home basic (32-bit).

    First and only problem with this operating system, but I can't seem to find
    the code anywhere online.
    I've only found this one post about it.
