I did some "digging" and came up with this:
You may receive a "0x8024402C" error message when you scan for updates on the Windows Update Web site
This problem may occur if a proxy server is not configured in Microsoft Internet Explorer. In this scenario, the Windows Update control cannot access the Internet.
If that is not the correct one - there are 6 more:
I went to windows update today so I could update my windows defender definition files because I could not update it directly via windows defender. When I got to the website it loaded up fine but as soon as it got done checking to see what updates I needed it gave me this message http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j127/acr45/WindowsUpdateError2.jpg
So I clicked on "Read more about steps you can take to resolve this problem (error number 0x8024402C) yourself."
After I clicked it I got this page http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j127/acr45/WindowsUpdateError.jpg
I clicked on "When searching for available updates on the Update site, you receive the 0x8024402C error.
As you can see in the window next to it the Problem description that is supposed to be there but does not show up at all. If I don't have that information how am I supposed to fix this problem!? I just thought it was the browser not rendering the page correct so I tried firefox, opera, internet explorer and avant browser and it's the same thing!
Someone please provide help for this.
