    Unable to update a Windows XP computer. I keep getting the error number
    0x80244B and can find no information on what to do.
    Two Questions:
    What is Error 0x8024402B?
    How do I fix this so I can get updates?

    Question 1 - I dont know.

    Question 2 - you could try the following:-


    Suggestion 1. Make sure that the date, time, and time zone on your computer
    are correct.

    Suggestion 2. Go to Start, Run, type in
    net.exe stop wuauserv
    Click OK or press Enter

    Re-register these files from Start, Run, type these in and click OK or press
    Enter after each one:

    regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll
    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll
    regsvr32.exe wups.dll
    regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll
    regsvr32.exe MSXML3.dll

    net.exe start wuauserv

    Suggestion 3. If still no joy, follow the steps here :

    Hi Jim, there's not much on this error,
    apparently it means
    Http status other than 200, but not mapped above

    I'll see if there is anything else I can find out to assist you.

  5. Looks like a connectivity problem of some kind then.
    It would probably help for Jim to describe his connection
    and related options (e.g. in IE Options, Connections).
    I would try getting a packet trace of the fault.
    E.g. capture it with netcap or Ethereal. Etc.

    I really appreciate your help, but I am so untech savy and have no clue about
    the information I would need to get. Where do I find this information and
    what is netcap or Eathereal?
