    I received updates through windows update this morning, restarted, then
    visited Windows Update to see if there were any other updates. After the
    scanning finished, I got the error code: 0x8024400D on the Windows Update
    I'm using a AMD 64 Athlon 3200+, nForce 4 chipset, 1GB RAM, Windows XP SP2
    all the updates, Zone Alarm free firewall, MS Anti-spyware beta, Google
    Toolbar, Spybot Search & Destroy. The latest addition to my system is the
    ZoneAlarm firewall. Could the firewall be stopping Windows Update? Any
    solutions or suggestions I could try?

    Thanks for your help! :)

    After doing some searching I try a solution posted by Maurice N ~ MVP. Here
    it is:
    After I visited the above link using MS IE, and said yes to my firewall and
    spyware, Windows Update worked correctly.

    I also received the 0x8024400D error. I had already installed 19
    high-priority updates.
    Windows update would not allow me back in to perfom the optional software
    updates, and displayed the 0x8024400D error.
    I followed the link Angela suggusted, posted by Maurice.
    It worked great, and allowed me back into Windows Update.
    I was able to comple the Optional Software Updates.
    Thank you for the help.
