Answer

 

• What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your subscription current?

• Is a 3rd party firewall being used in place of the native Windows firewall ?

• What other antimalware products are installed and running? .

 

 

A KB has been created for the 0x80070424 error code that appears when installing Microsoft Windows Updates/Microsoft Update.

The KB includes an automated Microsoft Fix it 50687 that corrects the issue.

Look at the following KB: <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968002>

Suggest you download and save the Fix it.

Then close all open programs and browsers prior to running MS Fix it 50687.msi.

Make sure "all" non-essential devices are unpluggəd. ( USB keys or any external media as this takes place.).

 

 

Are you referring to Windows Firewall?

1. Click Start, type services, right click on Services item from the list, click “Run as administrator”.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. From the list of services, double click on Windows Firewall, change the startup type to Automatic, click Start and then click ok.

Once the above steps are executed, check for the Firewall settings.
1. Click Start, click Control Panel.
2. Click Security Center, check if the Firewall status is ON.
3. If Firewall status is OFF, then click Windows Firewall in the left pane of the window and adjust the settings.
