  1. Hello, TechSpot Community.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the following error code WindowsUpdate_8024402F

    I have re-imaged my computer, and ever since, the windows update agent has not worked properly. I have not been able to update my OS in some time now. I have tried disabling antivirus, firewall, etc.

    My OS is Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit, service pack 2 (I actually had to download it manually and install it).

    Please point me in the right direction, if you could.

    Thank you very much.

    Which AV you are running, is it Norton by any chance?

    Hello, Archean.

    I do not know what helped the most, if the SFC scan, or the Windows Live OneCare; but it took care of the problem.

    I am running avast.

    Thank you for your reply, though.
