Why Does My Windows Update Not Work Anymore?

Windows UpdateNow what? Out of the blue my Windows Update does not work anymore. I get error message 0x80070424 and have no clue what that means. All I know is that my computer is not up todate and no matter what I do I always get the same error message.

Doing some research lead to all kinds of tips and ideas. I tried some and ignored some, but they did not work and then at the end when I was ready to just give up I came across this little tip. I used it on the Windows XP machine and don’t know if it will also work for Vista or Windows 7.


  • Click on the Start button
  • then click on run
  • write this in the box: regsvr32 wuaneng.dll
  • press enter
  • Now reboot and try to update Windows again.

 It worked like a charm for me. Let me know if it worked for you.
