Manual Fix for Windows Updates Error 8024402c
« on: September 08, 2014, 01:59:32 PM »
8024402c means it had trouble talking to the windows update servers. And I have always found it to be DNS related.

My fix is to have the system use the google dns servers and

This bug is on my own ISP. When I used their DNS every single machine in my house and office would fail with this error. As soon as I changed dns servers they all worked. I tried to let my ISP know but they just ignored me lol

To make changing your DNS servers easier I made a program that will do it for you :-)

So try the dns trick and see how it does :wink:
