Alan,
If you have not already opened him a pension case and you still get this error, here are a few things to try.
Run these tools and see if one of them report errors that cannot be fixed:
Disk error checking
System File Checker  
The system update tool

If those who invent it own and you still have a problem you can run some virus\malware scan from another source and then your.  Take a look at these links because they have some great info on virus protection:

    I would check to see if you have a Trojan or a virus on your system.  He saw several cases with that error and it has been resolved by removing the Trojan horse and reboot your system. Once the Trojan horse has been removed, they were able to install from Windows Update again. It seems possible that your Windows installation has been damaged deliberately by a Trojan horse to avoid you update your system or remove the Trojan horse.

    After replacing my old HDD with a new SSD, I successfully used my purchased 1 & 2 recovery discs to reload Windows 7 x 64.  Now, I am able to connect to the internet and navigate through Internet Explorer, but I can't get Windows Update to work.  I get this error: Windows Update 8024A 000 error Code.

    Hi all.

    solution:

    Download the new technology Intel® Rapid storage (RAID) driver 11.6.0.1030 version

    of http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=21852&ProductFamily=Software+Products&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Rapid+Storage+Technology+ (Intel % c2% ae + RST) & lang = fra and install in "normal" mode.

    This works.

    The Windows update error code appears after a hard drive replacement, and most providers have only this driver in version 9. XX or 10.xx.

    This driver 11 version solves the problem with windows Update error A 8024, 000.

    (have this error on 5 different machinetypes (Samsung, HP, Sony Vaio, etc.) and are all now resolved).

  • Windows Update error code

    I have a new Toshiba laptop, running Windows 7 (Home Premium SP1 installed by the OEM). My internet connection works fine for all sites Web except it fails when I try Windows Update. Error message code is 8024402F. I already checked 'automatically detect DNS settings' I also tried disabling my firewall (McAfee) temporarily and tried without solution. I tried dozens of times in recent days.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Hello

    According to the Microsoft Knowledge Base, it has something to do with your Internet connection. Have you already checked the Microsoft Knowledge Base?

    Microsoft recommends disabling the security software (antivirus and firewall) and try the troubleshooting Windows Update tool as described here:
    [Code error Windows Update 80244016, 8024402f, or c80003fa | http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Windows-Update-error-80244016-8024402f-or-c80003fa]

  • Windows Update - error Code 80072F8F

    Ok. So I am very anxious about my problem and after reading a lot of posts and various Microsoft support pages I have to insist that you are trying to copy and paste a generic useless solution that you throw all beginners. If you can't help, just don't post.

    In any case, my last Windows successful update was August 3. The update was "Security Update for Windows 7 for x 64-based systems (KB2286198) ', and he succeeded. Since then, no main Windows settings have been changed and no software was installed. However, without apparent reason, I get the above error code (see the title of the topic) whenever I try to run Windows Update. My first instinct was to run a Google search on the error code. It produces the following two pages:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/Windows-Update-error-80072F8F

    http://support.Microsoft.com/GP/system_maintenance_for_windows

    I tried all the solutions offered by these pages, and nothing worked. My clock is well-ordered, and in sync with time.windows.com. I ran Microsoft Automated Troubleshooting Services. No dice. So I looked around on your beautiful forums here and found the following topic:

    http://social.answers.Microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/10acefdc-297F-4D14-9f5c-5a90250a8b8c

    I tried to correct the problem by trying EVERY SOLUTION UNIQUE attributed to the user who created this topic, including resettlement certificates root to update and re-registering components (Softpub.dll, etc.) as suggested. I temporarily disabled my third-party security software (ESET Smart Security 4 and Yes, that my subscription is current and all my third-party software are up to date). Windows Update is the only feature which seems to be faulty on my machine. My internet connection is fine, loads pages without penalty in Firefox and Internet Explorer. I've rebooted more times than I can count.

    I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Given that you're OS software costs as much, if not more than a cheap computer in itself and I consider a problem I can't solve (because the way I am a student a graduate of computer science in the former USSR) all unacceptable. The fact that, not being not able to update the OS effectively paralyzes my laptop thousand dollars, I am naturally very irritated. Stay in place beyond 04:00 trying to solve an operating system bug is not valuable my time use, and so all productivity more is lost I can simply opt to migrate from Windows altogether. Let me know if you need more information about the configuration of my. I hope you can help, because I enjoy not having to do a full reformat.
