    Recently whenever I try to download 9 different critical updates I get the
    above error after download/installation has failed (very quickly). I have
    tried all the recommended fixes for Error code 0x8024402C but nothing works.

    So, then when I turn automatic updates on (to try to bypass this problem)
    the little shield symbol appears almost immediately on my toolbar with
    'downloading updates:17%' and then disappears after 10 seconds, with the
    updates still not being downloaded.

    What can I do to eliminate this problem?

    Here's what works for our company:
    1. Click on Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type cmd in the Open box to get a DOS prompt.
    3. Type "net stop wuauserv" without the quotes at the command prompt, and press
    Enter.
    4. Delete (or put in recycle bin) the contents of
    C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution (but not the SoftwareDistribution folder)

    5. Type net start wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
    6. Now try Windows Update again.
