    Hi,

    Windows update suddenly stopped working for me. I get the following in
    my windowsupdate.log

    2004-10-21 16:37:21-0400 1552 d6c WU client fails
    CClientCallRecorder::BeginFindUpdates from WindowsUpdate with error
    0x8024002e
    2004-10-21 16:37:21-0400 3980 adc
    ISusInternal::BeginFindUpdates failed, hr=8024002E
    2004-10-21 16:37:21-0400 3980 adc Unable to initiate
    asynchronous search, hr=8024002E

    I saw some other postings here that mention a file
    C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\ebd.chk.

    This file exists for me but is binary format so Im not sure if there
    is anything I should do to it.

    Ive also double checked the registry to ensure there are no policies
    set to disable windows update.

    Any ideas??

    thanks,
    Adam

    In case it helps anyone I found the answer. My company had pushed some
    group policy down that disabled windows update.

    I had to fix the registry settings at
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
