Been having this for a while, and I think its affecting other functions of my system now, so I've just about had it it with this. Basically put, Windows Update cannot check for updates, neither can I access the update website manually. The same pretty much goes for any other virus/malware scanning/removal program that needs updates of virus definitions (i.e. Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, etc.). Latest error code is 80246002. Sometimes the updates come through, but often it will fail. I have reason to belive its some type of malware, but thus far all my attempts to locate it have failed. Any help is appreciated!

Post in the "Am I infected? What do I do?" section. This could be a few different reasons, but you should rule out infection first.

This happened to me too, what I ended up doing was doing an auto disk cleanup thing (I'm not totally sure how I did this, I was trying to start up in safe mode and hit something by accident). So maybe try starting your computer to the page where it has "safe mode", etc on it and running a disk cleanup, after I did this, my computer has been able to update no problem
