Problems updating vista sp1
------------ in the MS Answers forum will work for Win 7 SP1 as well as Vista SP2.... You might find some useful hints in Microsoft MVP Woody Leonhard's 09-Aug-2016 entry on his Woody on Windows Info World blog titled that also includes detailed instructions for using Dalai's workaround at
Depending on date you purchased your computer, you might also find that all six Win32updates currently listed on Dalai's webpage are missing from your system and have to be manually installed because you performed a factory reset. The 8024402C error was from the Microsoft Windows Update not the Microsoft Fixit Tool.
To avoid this problem, I've permanently disabled automatic Windows Updates [Windows Update | Change settings | Important updates | Never check for updates (not recommended)] and I run a manual Windows Updates a few times a month just to see if any updates are pending.
I wait a day or two after each Patch Tuesday, check Dalai's webpage at and manually install the new Windows kernel-mode-driver (Win32K.sys) update added to his list of required updates before I run a manual Windows Update to install my remaining Patch Tuesday updates.
The changes I made to the TCP/IP settings, I went ahead and reverted them back to Automatically obtain address and windows updates is still working properly.
It let me know there was one optional update this morning within 3 minutes.
Hi cryss962: Thanks for the feedback, and glad to hear Windows Update seems to be running normally again.
