    New notebook on Vista Business. T7500 CPU, 4 gigs RAM, 160gig HDD. It will
    not download any updates which I need to do so I can install Service Pack 1
    as a result of Update error 8024402C. I have a Microsoft Service Pack 1 on
    DVD - DVD was given to me by Microsoft.

    I have followed Help suggestions:
    Notebook has Internet Access
    I have disbale Virus Protection and tried updates still failed
    It is on a Peer to Peer network - no server

    The only advice I followed from Help was to check option in LAN settings,
    under Automatic Configuration, to "Automatically detect settings."

    Rebooted many times - tried over and over - everything failed. I have spend
    6 hours + installing Office, Photoshop Elements, installing 5 printers on it
    setup Outlook and imported .pst. I really don't want to do a new setup. Is
    there anyway I can sort out this error and downloads updates without having
    to wipe the harddrive clean an do a new OS installation.

    Assistance will be so much appreciated. Please help.

    Hi guys...

    I have had a similar problem which has taken me days and hours to sor
    out. I have been combing through this forum and every other forum tha
    has purported to have a fix... but none worked for me. Finally I go
    onto Microsoft Support. Attached below is my email describing m
    problem (as well as the fixes I tried), and the reply from the suppor
    guy. It worked first go, however I have not seen this fix on any foru
    or website.

    HERE IS MY TECH SUPPORT REQUEST:
    HERE IS THE TECH SUPPORT REPLY:
    THIS WORKED! (Note: He has addressed a different error code in th
    title) I HAVE NOW SENT THE BELOW REPLY ASKING WHY IT WASN'T REQUIRE
    BEFORE AND WHY IT WORKS NOW:
    I hope this helps someone save some serious time. I still don't know
    why this has worked and am awaiting a reply from Microsoft Support.
