Long story short, i'm trying to fix error code 0x80240020 concerning Windows Update on a Windows 2000 Professional SP4 installation.
Updates are found and are downloaded, but all of them immediately fail as soon as Windows Update tries to install them. I've spent quite a lot of time on this and basically I've found that I'm missing some winlogon\notify keys in the registry.
I won't be able to test this theory until tomorrow when I can get my hands back on the computer. However, I noticed that the Cryptographic Services service is not even there in services.msc. Should it be there in a windows 2000 installation?
Also, updates manually installed are no problem and fully install. The above question is really what I'm concerned about right now. How can I get it installed if it needs to be/should be there?
