I’ve got a Toshiba Qosmio notebook that’s running Windows 7 64 bit OS. When trying to run updates I get an 8024402F Error. I have had a look online and tried disabling antivirus software, disabling firewall, deleting temp files, renaming the software distribution folder and running fixes etcetera with no luck whatsoever. Anyone out there who has actually resolved this error successfully?
