When you try to connect to Microsoft Windows Update or Microsoft Update, you receive the following error code:
On a computer that is running Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), you encounter one or more of the following problems:
I was infected with a virus (unknown), I have ran anti virus scan and Microsoft Security Essentials and have supposedly found and removed the virus. Now I am unable to get updates for my windows, It says my Automatic is turned on, but my security center says it's not. I looked into my registry and found I am missing both of these :◦HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv
I am unable to restore these using the fix, and doing it manually. What is my next option?
I was infected by XP Total Security through the Windows Automatic Updates. I trusted it and thought it was from MIcrosoft, and now I cannot download updates. Error message: 0x80070424
I was infected also but now get this message "virus & spyware definitions update failed--with error message 0x80070424. What can I do
so updates download to protect my computer. Thanks
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1.
I am on a small home-based LAN, my internet connection going through a DSL router.
My computer won't go for updates nor will it ping host names via command line interface, but my internet browser is working.
Can send/receive ping packets to IPs ofcomputers on LAN.
Can send/receive ping packets to IP of default gateway/DNS server
Can send/receive ping packets to external website IP.
Can-NOT send/receive internal/external host NAMES.
This leads me to believe it is a DNS problem.
Now, a few Services won't run. Below are the services and the error messages I get from Services and from CMD..
Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer.
Error 0x8007277a: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialised.
System error 10106 has occurred.
The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.
Background Intelligent Transfer System
Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. FOr more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code -2147014790.
From Event Viewer:
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error 2147952506 (0x8007277A).
A service specific error occurred: 2147952506.
Could not start the IPSEC Services service on Local COmputer.
Error 10106: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialised.
Could not start the Net Logon service on Local Computer.
Error 10106: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.
Also, I tried running System integrity Check and Repair 'SFC', but it won't run. :(
Next, I tried installing Microsoft Fixit tool from the Microsoft website, it wouldn't install.
Now, I would guess that these programs aren't running because of this basic DNS problem.
I want to install the latest updates for my OS. I would be grateful if anyone helps resolve this problem.
No solution? I see lots of people complaining about this error, but no fixes. FixIt just says "windows update is broken", but doesn't give any method to fix it.
I also have the error message (0x80070424) and cannot find a fix for it. What is the point of this blog? No one answers any of the posted comments with a solution.
I have been working on this for two weeks with no solution. when will Microsoft find a fix?
I am also receiving error 0x8007277a. I have tried every solution I could find. Still no resolution. Very upset that Microsoft is doing nothing to resolve this issue when it appears to be a very common problem.
Use windows restore point it worked for me
