Hi,

First of all, you should reply to Daavee first and wait for what he has to say, but...

Windows Updates no longer works until you have service pack 3. Errors include 0x80244019, 0x80240036 and 0x8024400A.

Verify your current service pack level...

  • Hold down the Windows key (between Ctrl and Alt) and hit the Pause Break key
  • Examine what is listed in the System: section regarding your service pack level
  • Also, make a note of your processor type in the Computer: section (see later)

If you are already at SP3 let us know and disregard the rest of this post.

If there is no service pack level designated, first you must download SP2 from...

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=28

...and then run the downloaded program to install SP2. You can ignore the text that says that it is for network installations and also ignore the text advising Windows/Microsoft Update if only updating one PC.

As an alternative to SP2 you could download SP1A (xpsp1a_en_x86.exe) from…

http://slug.ceca.utc.edu/ftp/pub/windows/patches/winxp/

…which Daavee (also contributing to this thread) found. It is half the size of SP2 so should be quicker. However, as you can see, it is not a Microsoft web site.

Once you have done that, or if you were already at service pack 1, 1A or 2, you can install SP3, but before you do, read this article…

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950717

…and if your PC is an HP Pavilion, Presario or Media Center and has an AMD processor (see above) you need to install this patch before installing SP3…

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=uk&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=pv-60484-2

Install SP3 by downloading and running from...

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=24

…again, you can ignore the text that says that it is for network installations and also ignore the text advising Windows/Microsoft Update if only updating one PC.

Then try and get up to date with Windows Updates.
