    Hi Macleod

    I have had this problem since i bought my PC(1,5-2 y), but i only found it
    out for about 5 months ago. Since then i've been trying to solve this
    problem, and i have read many different solutions, and none have worked.

    when i started trying your solution i got a fail the first step and the fail
    code: 0x80070005

    I would really appreciate some help because i have no idea what to do.

    Thank you!

    Hello Patti,

    I came across this post of yours and your solution seems to have helped many
    people. I'm hoping you can help me out.

    I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop and
    around September this year it stopped being able to Update. The error I get
    is "Code 80070424 Windows Update Encountered an unknown error".

    I tried the solution you mentioned below, but I could not find the
    DeleteFlag value.

    I have also tried all the following fixes but nothing has worked :

    - Regsvr32 wuaueng.
    - Renaming the folder catroot2 and deleting the SofwareDistribution folder
    in system32.
    - Looking through the BITS settings and enabling everything.
    - typing in the following commands in Run :

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wucltux.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuwebv.dll

    - Restarting the following:

    net start bits
    net start wuauserv
    net start Eventlog

    - I also tried typing Regsvr32 QMGR.DLL in Run but the systems responds by
    asking me to check if QMGR.DLL is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

    I would really appreciate it if you could suggest a solution.

    Thanks so much in advance!

    First, using Internet Explorer, *strongly* suggest a scan of the system
    by the OneCare Safety Scanner to see if malware is causing the error-

    If the OneCare Safety Scan detected malware, please post *what* was
    detected before proceeding any further !

    *If* nothing was detected by the scan, then go here:

    How do I reset the Windows Update settings?

    Click the Fixit button and when you are prompted to either run or save
    the Fixit, choose *save*. When the download completes, read this -

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state

    Once you're restarted the system to the clean boot state and *IF* a 3rd
    party firewall been turned off, ensure that the native XP firewall is
    On by opening Control Panel > Windows Firewall. The system *must* be
    connected to the internet when the Fixit is run in it's Aggressive mode.

    Now run MicrosoftFixit50202.msi and choose the Aggressive mode.
    Restart once it's finished it's operation.
    Can the system update now ?

    If not, please post at least the *last* 50 or so lines of the
    WindowsUpdate.log into your reply:

  9. To avoid confusion, please begin a new thread about your specific problem
    and computer. State your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP
    SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) in
    your first post. Thank you.

  14. I tried it but it worked only for few minutes; the downloading started but
    afterwards it stoped. I opened the windows update site again and the error
    was there.
