windows update error 8024402F

Hi
I have windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. Till Sept. 17 windows update ran good. Since then when I run windows update I get Windows Update code 8024402F. I looked in internet for solutions but none helped.

1 - I changed the clock settings.
2 - I ran microsoft's fixit.
3 - I stopped the update service and renamed SoftwareDistribution folder and started the service again.

I'm out of ideas.
Thanks

Ok well 1st i wanna say this problem normally is not long term, and usually will fix it's self.
Take a look here : Temporary connection-related errors may occur when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update
In that link follow all of the methods, but specifically make sure you do method E. Once done restart your computer and wait about 3-5 min. See if your issue is resolved.

Please run an MGADiag report - it may point to a couple of areas for work...

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

solution to update error 8024402F

After days of trying to find out whats causing the problem, I found out that an update to .net was the culprit (KB982670). I uninstalled .net and did a check for updates. When I installed the update, afterwards I would get the same error. After uninstalling again .net and hidding the update, It works fine eversince.

Wow, awesome. Thanks

I had to do a repair install of Windows 7 Ultimate (which Windows Update and moved onto SP1 so I had to download a Windows 7 SP1 DVD. The repair worked fine and fixed the other problem but Windows update stopped working.

Installed updates did not show KB982670 as being installed but I tried uninstalling .NET4 anyway, rebooted and bingo, Windows updates work again. Thanks for this.

Windows 7 (My Idea)
 
 

I'm posting here cos I've gotten this problem in XP and Windows 7 - And it is the same cause and same fix.

Delete ALL of your Dot Net 4 installations, this includes "Extended" and "Client Profile" - It will want you ro reboot, but don't do it, try WU again after you uninstall these, it should work.

I ran across this in Windows XP, and that's what was the root cause of it.

But I could not understand, why I just did an "In Place" install of Windows 7 on a machine that was getting updates - I had to do it because my Boot sector had gotten messed up, after the "upgrade" I noticed that I was getting a message "Dot Net 4 needs to be repaired" - It repaired then I rebooted, and NO updates after reboot.

So I just thought, what if the same thing causes this error in Windows 7 as in XP, and Bingo, it was.

Take out ALL dot net 4, do not reboot, then try WU again, if it works, update all including dot net fixes - Then DOWNLOAD the stand alone Dot Net 4 client profile. Don't install it until you've cleaned your system out with ccleaner and Yamicksoft Windows Manager using "1-click clean" - Then try installing dot net 4 again, if it still updates after that, all good, but if not, then delete the stand alone dot net 4.

I don't know why dot net 4 causes this, but it does. it's error number

8024402F

I don't know if the error number is the same in XP, but in XP removing the client profile fixed it.

OK I see 'RinceWindz" came to the same conclusion, but just for identification's sake, its the Dot Net 4 so-called 'Fix"
