Windows 7 update - error codes 800700D and 80243004

Hi,

I purchased Windows 7 some while ago, but didnt install it before now. The installation went well, but when i run update for windows 7, there is one left (for x64-based systems (KB974431)), and i get error code 8007000D on that.

I searched the forums for the error and found one solution - run msconfig.exe and check services which in my case was only AVG internet security, and now i got error 80243004.

Any suggestions that wouldnt cause another error, please? :)

Martin

Windows Update fails and produces an error with the following codes:

WindowsUpdate_80243004WindowsUpdate_dt000

Or "WindowsUpdate_80243004" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

You will also see that the system tray was abnormally large and full of blank space.

To fix this, simply resize the tray by selecting the tray and clicking Customize. Next click to make the try show fully. This will resize it into the task bar which will resolve the issue. Very strange.

Re-run Windows update and you will find that it now works properly.
