Not sure if that is worth doing in relation to Windows 7? I will dig around further...
The software in the link below is a batch file to perform all those tasks automatically. It's an easier way to fix Windows updates.

Don't forget to check time Time/Date settings on your machines because that will also keep Windows updates from working.

Windows 7

Hi just tried the magic button and it appeared to take longer to try and download but eventually it came up with the same message: -

"WindowsUpdate_8024402C" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

Thank you for letting me know about the utility and I guess Vista and Windows 7 are out of same stable so the other link I posted from MS will be worth a try as well.

Ohh how I love PC's.

OK so I ran the MS supported link fix Vista and it worked in the default mode. I have now been able to download the latest driver for my Network card and I hope that does not break it. On the instructions for the MS link I had to re-boot where the instructions for the link above did not ask for a re-boot so I can not say which one truly fixed the issue. I hope at some point in the future these messages might help others avoid several days of wasted effort.

IMO try the How do I reset Windows Update components? this 1st.

Will now try and see if I can log onto works machine...

BTW Norton 2010 is still installed and I did not have to turn off the firewall.

Time for a coffee...
