Windows Update fails -Error 0x80244019.

 I had to perform a Recovery from the recovery partition which takes me back to SP2
When I try to update to SP3 I get the above error code.

I can manually download SP3 but cannot install it.
My PC is a Compac Presario with an AMD processor

I have downloaded HP fix for this to no avail.

Where do I go next.

Hello jayd

Run the Fix It on this MS page

Be sure that your trun off your antivirus before you start getting service pack.


After you are all done with SP update, turn your antivirus on.


For the future, make it a practice to do mirror-image backup on a regular basis so that you have a good working o.s. to get back to if a disaster hits or if your system becomes unsteady.

Backups are your pc's best friend.
