Solving error code 8024402c for Windows Update: So far, persistently I’ve found this strange error in Windows Update center stating that “Windows couldn’t rummage around for new updates”.
The reason is your computer is designed to access a WSUS Server that, for a few reasons, isn’t accessible.
The first question is: what’s WSUS (Windows Server Update Services)?
WSUS or Windows Server Update Services may be a free patch management tool out there to Windows Server directors permitting them to authorize, publish and distribute updates at intervals a network (most of the days within a domain).
Anyway, the second (and most important) question is: however I will solve that error? It’s quite straightforward, following that procedure:
Open written account editor (Start menu –> Run –> regedit)
Find the subsequent path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Chage the worth of the UseWUServer from one to zero (double click on that, modification the worth and click on OK)
Restart Windows Update service (Start menu –> Run –> services.msc, realize the Windows Update service and click on on Restart)
That’s all. currently you’ll be able to transfer updates once more.
EDIT 28/08/2013: On Windows eight I’ve conjointly experienced a unique resolution. From prompt (as admin) kind “netsh winhttp reset proxy” and so re-check for updates.
