Microsoft Update returns [Error number: 0x80248011

The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. Take the following steps to try solving the problem:
Refresh the page.
In Internet Explorer, delete your Temporary Internet Files by going to the Tools menu and clicking Internet Options.
Close and then re-open Internet Explorer.

From the troubleshooting steps that you provided it seems as if you're running on XP, i'm not going to jump out and say you have conflicker, but that's definitely one of the side effects of the current worm.


Try doing this.

Open up command prompt.  Start//Run// CMD

net stop wuauserv
cd /d C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution
rd /s DataStore
net start wuauserv


What this will do is delete pending installation updates.  In doing that if there was a stuck one it'd free it up.

This will most likely only work if you've already attempted to download the updates and it failed, if you're saying  that you're opening Windows Updates and it leads you to a dead webpage you're going to have different problems.

Jonvee--Yes, it is a repeat of the link http://www.updatexp.com/0x80248011.html
in my post above.  The MS article probably was the basis for what Marc Liron--MS MVP put on that website.

steveurich--Looking forward to hearing what the situation is after you try some of the ideas above.

Jonvee--I meant to mention that danthegreat1's first post also has part of the same suggestions.  So if that part solves the problem he beat us both to it.

jcimarron .. i really put that link in for completeness, to give steveurich the best chance of a resolution.  But you're right, if it succeeds danthegreat1 has beat us both.
