Windows 7 Update Error, Error Code 8024DFFE

Q: Windows 7 Update Error, Error Code 8024DFFE

Hi -
I'm not getting Windows Update to run. HP p6240f, Windows 7, 64-bit OS
When I go to shutdown, the shutdown button has an orange shield that indicates it wants to update.
If I go to Windows Update and and say "Check for Updates", it tells me to Install new Windows Update software. I press Install Now and get "windows could not search for new updates. Error found Code 8024DFFE Windows Update encountered an unknown error". When I press "Get Help with this error", I select Windows Update Troubleshooter, which opens a Diagnostics Troubleshooting Wizard, which opens "Window Update, find and fix problems with Windows Update", which runs a repeating cycle of Detecting problems, collecting files, checking registry, Resolving problems .... over and over until it finishes eventually saying that it was not able to fix all the problems. In particular is a new "Windows Update error 0x80070490(2014-08-29-T-09_02_42P)". I attach the picture. I've done this a bunch of times, including rebooting to see if that matters.

This happened a week ago and the same thing happened as in the preceding paragraph, except that afterward - even though it gave all the same error codes - the Windows Update successfully ran.

I found a suggestion on a MS Windows site to run (in an administrator's Dos window) sfc /SCANNOW, which takes a long time to run and I did so and it found nothing and still the problem exists.

I found a note from a Google search that said to do something with my firewall, but I couldn't understand it. I use Avast Antivirus and Comodo Firewall.

I'll monitor this post and will do my best to stay on top of proposed solutions. I always appreciate the help I get here.

Many thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 Update Error, Error Code 8024DFFE

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi. Firstly, thanks for the info. I had encountered the same problem with windows update error 8024DFFE on my Acer 4830, Win7 64bit 2 days ago and was trying to find a solution online without any success. But then I came across ur post and realized that I have a similar configuration as you. I also uses comodo firewall and avast antivirus. This led me to think that either one of them is the problem. I disable the firewall and can now check for updates. How that helps.

Hi,
I have been having some recurring problems with the attempts to install some automatic windows updates.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Acess 2007
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook Junk Email Filter

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET. Framework, specifically in an order, 3.5 then, 1.1, then 1.1 SP1. I start with 3.5, then as the installation starts it says that to contiunue installation I must turn off or on windows features in the Control Panel. I do so and turn off all Windows features. Then continue and it again states to turn off features in the Control Panel.

I wasn't able to continue the process, and I am also concerned that this is the same error that made me unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials, (as t... Read more

I have been having problems installing 8 updates since early May 2012. I am getting the error code in the title line.

The updates are:

I have run FixIt, but to no avail. I have also turned off services and rebooted and ran Windows Update and still got this error.

Do I need to just skip these updates, or somehow troubleshoot this and fix it. If I need to fix it, I need help.

Regards, and thanks.

Hello,

I recieve error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run. It doesn't get past the stage of checking for updates.

I've tried several fixes including:
- Waiting 15 minutes and running Windows Update again.
- Letting Windows Update run on its own schedule.
- SFC /Scannow
- Renaming the Catroot2 Folder.
- Running 3 different Fixit tools.
- Clean windows install.

After each and every one of those fixes I've tried windows update and I still get error C80003FA.

SFC Scannow has previously said no errors, but the last run through it said there were unfixable errors. I've got the log, though for brevity's sake I will keep it until someone asks for it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

A:error code from windows update

Error details: Code 800F020B. This apparently indicates that the device does not exist. So the update may not be applicable to your printer.

If you are not distressed about it & your printer is working well, it might be best to just hide the update, so you don't keep getting the update, & forget about it.

If you really want the update it's always best to get updates directly from the manufacturer, so go to their website & check for any updates that are applicable to particular model printer.

thx for any assistance you can offer! :)

A:Windows update Error code 646.

Hi -

The first thing I would suggest that you try is removing PC-cillin Internet Security as its firewall can interfere with Windows Updates.

Trend Micro removal --> http://esupport.trendmicro.com/1/How...n-my-comp.aspx

Reboot upon completion.

Install MSE --> http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Try Windows Updates --> www.update.microsoft.com

Hello all I am scouring the internet for answers but I can't seem to find any so I thought I should ask the Gurus down at the Windows Vista Forums. Anyways I am trying to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86 and all I get is this error. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

A:Windows Update Error Code 643

Hello Peacemaker,

When you try to install an update for the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5, you may receive Windows Update error code "0x643" or Windows Installer error code "1603"

RESOLUTION

To successfully install the update, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer, and then reinstall all the versions of the .NET Framework on the computer. You may have to work through more than one of the following methods.

Method 1: Manually remove and reinstall .NET Framework
To manually remove and reinstall the .NET Framework, follow these steps:

1. Remove the .NET Framework.
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Note each version of the .NET Framework that is already installed on the computer. Then, uninstall all the versions of the .NET Framework.
4. When you are prompted, restart the computer.
Method 2. Use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to clean up the MSI database state for all the versions of the .NET Framework.

1. Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center: http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe
2. Install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility as an administrator or as a user account that is a member of the local Administrators group.
3. Click Start, poin... Read more

Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1

I have been trying unsuccessfully to do all of the helps to get Windows Update to check for updates and install. I tried all of the Fixit and Windows Update Troubleshooter batch files, etc. I thought I was making headway this morning when it said updates would install on the next shutdown. So I shutdown. Looks like 57 updates had a failed status. When I ran the check for updates again, I get the following error code:
C80003FA

I googled and really only found the same help items I have already tried, the fixit's etc.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

We know nothing about your computer, other than it's running Windows 7 Professional SP1, so do the following in it.
Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.
After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
Information about your computer will appear.
Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

I have tried first "Fix-It" which doesn't produce any error message. Secondly I launched "SURT", which tells me "This update doesn't apply to your computer". "SFC /scannow" doen't report any violation issue.I don't know how to do for resolving this problem.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64 bits SP1. Norton (NIS, the most recent version), "ShellfolderFix" and also Tune-Up utilities are installed on my PC. I have also tried to install KB3001652 manually after having deactivated the firewall and the "Auto-Protect" functions of Norton : no success.

Hi,
I have the error code 80073712 when trying to apply only updates KB3020369 and KB3020370.
I tried first the sfc /scannow command as admin but I forgot what it did so I retried running it afterwards and it told me to restart the laptop to fix something so that's what I did but the error remained there.
Then I retried running the command again and it found nothing.

So I searched the forums and microsoft websites and I downloaded the System Update Readiness Tool and it prompted me to install the Hotfix for Windows (KB947821) but it hanged at "Installing Hotfix for Windows (KB947821) (update 1 of 1)... " so I waited for half an hour then closed it. I retried doing it again, and it installed successfully, I restarted my laptop but the windows error was still there. I retried running the tool and it showed me the same thing that it want to apply the KB947821 hotfix so it did but then the windows update error was still unresolved.

I didn't attach the CBS log files because they're huge and one of them is really huge and it gets bigger with time and it gives me an error while copying it but I attached a screenshot of the folder.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium on a 64 bit operating system. I haven't used this computer in over a year, but my brother has been using it since, but hasn't kept it updated at all or with any anti-virus. I was able to install everything on Windows Update except Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2621440). I've tried everything from simply restarting, rebooting in safe mode and safe mode with networking (I could not open windows update either of those ways), and doing a safe mode with networking full scan with Malewarebytes Anti-Malware, Super Anti Spyware, and Microsoft Security Essentials. I did find 2 trojans and removed them and rebooted, but was unable to install this security pack still. When I tried installing the individual version of the security pack online, it told me the update did not apply to this system. I also tried running the windows update repair tool.

On a side note, but related to the issue of trying to make the computer more secure, I made a separate administrator account and downgraded my own account to a standard user, but I'm unable to demote my brother's administrator account. His is not password protected, but there is no option to change the account type, even when I'm logged on as him or under the other administrator account I just made.

PROBLEM -

Hey every one! I need a little help with my Windows Update.

On the 25th of October, the update was fine and everything. Now, when I went to go update on the 31st it said the 25th was the LAST day it auto-update on! I went "WTF" so I decided to manually check for the updates but I did not expect a slap to my face with a smooching red error code: 80070424 (screenshot of the error).

I've tried many solutions but none seems to work; at this point my brain has literally crashed due to many fail attempts at trying to find a possible fix for my Windows Update. I supposed my moral is decreasing and entering into a pessimistic stage of my PC.

My OS is Windows Vista Premium 64 bit, and no all the programs I currently have were installed before the 25th but Comodo Internet Security (which I uninstalled to check if it was the culprit but it wasn't; oh I also checked Comodo Memory Firewall but it wasn't the problem either) was on the day that Update failed and gave error code 80070424.

Yes, I've also tried to do a system repair AND restore but none of them even worked strangely. :/ Made another user account to check if Windows Update works but it returned the same code error. Oh and could someone check my HiJackThis log and check my system "stuff?" Not sure why I'm getting that many files missing errors.*

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Please take a gander at this article by Microsoft.

Windows Update error 800B0100

If, and only if, this is negative, then disable your firewall and AV software and try again. After updating, then turn back on your AV & firewall software.

Some third-party anti-virus/firewall software are problematic.

Most of us here use, and only use, Microsoft Security Essentials.

Hello,

I honestly don't know how long Windows Update has been like this on my system, I only noticed just the other day when trying to install Visual Studio Community 2015.

The error code for the update is: 80073712



The behavior of Windows Update is the same every time I open it after leaving it alone for a while:

1. I open Windows Update. It tells me there are some updates I should install (10 important, 2 optional).

2. I click Install updates. It takes about 30 seconds, then I see "The updates were successfully installed" with a green check and everything. Cool.

3. I close it then re-open Windows Update. Now says "Check for updates for your computer" with a red X. Not as cool.

4. I click Check for updates. About 10-20 seconds later it says "Windows could not search for new updates" and shows the error code 80073712.

5. I close the window and can repeat from step 1 indefinitely.



- I downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness Tool already.

- Running sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt simply shows Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation. Nothing in the CBS log. Zip file of CBS folder (C:\Windows\logs\CBS) attached below.

Each time they fail and give me an error code of "00000643."I visited the Microsoft Support website, searched for the error code and received the following information:CAUSE: Windows Update error code "0x643" and Windows Installer error code "1603" are generic error codes. Typically, these error codes mean that the update was not installed. These errors codes are usually caused by a corruption in the .NET Framework installation or by an inconsistency on the MSI database state. SOLUTION: To resolve this problem, you must fix the MSI software update registration corruption issues, or uninstall multiple versions of the .NET Framework by using the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool, and then reinstall those components.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100I...

A:Windows Update Error Code 00000643

kb923100 gives a link in method1 that offers a "fix it for me". have you tried that yet? (direct link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971187 )

then try method 2 (run uninstaller then reinstall components) noting that you need to install them in the order listed as altering the order may cause conflicts.

an aversion to manual regedit is very much ok ;)

I believe I have gotten this error before, about 3 months ago. It's driving me insane. My laptop's updates are probably outdated by about a month by now!

Help me! Please! I beg of you all!

Thank you all!
