Hello! I hope I am asking this in the right section...
Recently, I noticed that my laptop was trying to install the same three Important Updates every time I started it. I made a note to take a look at it when I had time, but after about a week, it became unable to actually update. I have a Dell Inspirion 1750 with Windows 7 Home Premium.
It immediately gives an error message saying "Windows could not search for new updates" and lists the error as Code 80070422. The help menu advised to change or restart the Windows Update service, but that did not help. Neither did the Windows Update Troubleshooter.
When I run the Troubleshooter, it says there are problems installing recent updates and with "Windows Update Error 0x8024402C(2014-01-20-T-11_35_41A). Strangely, if I ask for more details, it shows that the Update Error was fixed, but it initially says it failed.
It also says it fixed "Service Registration is missing or corrupt." But that shows up each time I run the troubleshooter and Windows still cannot update.
I am not sure what info I need to present, but I will quickly update with any further info requested. Thank you in advance for any time you have for this!
