0x80244019 Windows 10 Update Error

by Brewskie19 / August 8, 2015 10:18 AM PDT

Everything was working great with Windows 10, but suddenly, when I go to Windows update and I check for updates, I can error 0x80244019 and it asks me to retry. When I retry, I get the error again. This has been going on for 3 or 4 days now, anyone know how to get Windows Update working again?

FIXED IT, Went to advanced setting, and checked off "Give Me Updates For Other Microsoft Products When I Update Windows" and now Windows Update works. This makes no sense, but I read about this fix on answers.microsoft.com and it worked. Odd.

Sounds like this old thing.

In the past there were updates that were for Microsoft Office. For some odd reason these would fail if the demo version of Office was on the machine that had never been run.

The mystery is why Microsoft never fixed it.

CCleaner Free fixed it for me when other solutions wouldn't

That didn't work for me on one computer (but did on another). But running CCleaner's registry cleaner did work. Ran the cleaner then checked for updates and all was good, windows 10 is now installed. Just download and install CCleaner Free, run it, and click "Registry" and fix all issues.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
