Windows 7: Problem with IE, MSE, Chrome & Windows Update: 0x80244019

Problem with IE, MSE, Chrome & Windows Update: 0x80244019

Good day,

For quite a few weeks now I have had a problem with getting windows update and MSE to... well update . Each time I attempt to do so, they always return with the error 0x80244019. I have been checking on other fourms, and a few users seem to have the same error, but none of the suggestions seem to resolve my issues. For some strange reason, when ever I try to access a page in IE or Chrome it always (no matter what page I attempt to go to) returns with the xampp homepage - and it's not even on! Here is an example with chrome (note the address bar ):

And with MSE:

And with IE:

I also tryed resetting IE by: Internet Options -> Advanced -> Reset. And checking the LAN and proxy settings etc. Which didn't work, I also tryed a command in cmd, which didn't work either (I got it from another page regarding a similar issue) I think it reset the network configurations or something o_O.

So, the only browser I can use is mozilla, and I can't update or anything so, I am really quite annoyed. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Hi,

Have you tried uninstalling XAMPP, and then seeing if you can update?

Have you had a any malware infections recently?

I have not had any malicious infections. I did a scan about 2 hours ago which scanned my WHOLE computer just in case. I'll try to uninstall xampp, but these problems where occuring before I installed it (not the IE and Chrome problem but the MSE and Windows update problem).

Hi,

OK. Post back any error messages once you uninstall XAMPP.

OK, XAMPP is now uninstalled (I then restarted), and somehow the MSE update worked. BUT windows update hangs on at zero percent still (and has been doing so for the last 12 minutes)... Any ideas?

EDIT: OK, 20 minutes since the start of the update process. All of them failed with the error code 80072EFD.

Hi,

How many Windows updates are sitting in the queue? Are there any .NET updates? Has Service Pack 1 been installed already?

Hi,

I would update the .NET first, then reboot and try the remianing updates.

If you receive Windows Update error 80072efd while checking for updates, the cause might be a high number of update requests on the Windows Update servers. Close Windows Update, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then run Windows Update again. You can also wait for Windows Update to run at its next scheduled time.

There could be other reasons, as discussed in the link, but try my suggestion, and then lets take it from there.
