    Default Windows update problem

    Whenever I use my Windows 7 PC it says it cannot connect to Windows Update. It comes up with 8024402f as the error. I have run the program it suggests to fix it but it still will not connect to Windows Update.

    Could McAfee be causing the problem?

    Wouldnt be surprised if Mcafee is the cause. Its not that great. It'll probably crash the computer sooner or later. One thing its good at. Disable it, then see if it works. If it does thats probably the culprit

    Is it the AV or does it include the firewall?? If it includes the firewall disable it

    Think it is both the antivirus and firewall.

    No luck with turning the antivirus and the firewall off. Still not connecting to Windows Update

    What does it say under ipv4 under the network/LAN connection??

    I take it this can get on the net / it loads sites?

    Get this, run it then tick all options except the last one. Post the text that comes up, after you click on scan and after it finishes scanning

    Dont bother pissing about running various fix it programs, total waste of time.

    Have a look at the following thread- EXACT same problem same error message, and fix. http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthr...s-Update-issue

    Direct link to actual fix, use method #8 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2509997
