Hi,

I have Windows Vista Home Basic installed on my laptop and when Windows Update runs it goes to the downloading updates window and stops.
The progress bar shows that it is still searching but nothing is actually happening. I have even tried the fixes for the following Error codes, 0x8024402c, 80080005 and the following Knowledge Base articles , (kbtshoot KB900936)

Can anyone help me with this matter.... i have tried the recommended fixes offered by Vista to no avail.

Thank You

Geekayeye

I don't know if this is any help to you, but I had a very similar problem a few months back. I rang up microsoft and they said that they were experimenting with news "Strings". They me step by step instructions and I added a few more "Strings", and everything was sweet. You could give them a bell and see what they say. It is a Microsft issue. Sorry I can not be of more help

I'm late for work right now, but if you can located the Windows Update log file, that may help in figuring out what's wrong. Try searching google for it's location.

Yes, please. It is located in
C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log

Thanks Billy3! I gotta bookmark this for future reference (and the Windows Update logs are a real pain to interpret).

Windows Update logs are a real pain to interpret

True.. that said, you can usually go to the last appearance of an 0x???????? (in hex) error code, google the code, and get the correct answer for fixing it :huh:

EDIT: It should also be noted that if you have "C:\Windows\Windows Update.log" instead of "C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log", the one with the space is usually malware related. Use the one sans space.
