    I am currently trying to update one of the work computer using Automatic
    Update however it keeps failing with the following "Error Code: 0x80240017 "
    and much to my disgust i can't work out why it's failing or even find
    anything in the help sections.
    Has anyone seen this error before or know what it means? If so drop me a line

    Delete the contents of the %SYSTEMROOT%\SoftwareDistribution\Download
    folder. Then go to and check for updates.

    If you want to be more cautious, you could move the contents of
    that folder to a backup location instead of deleting it.
