"WindowsUpdate_80070424" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

    Question

  • Hello.

     

    I'm running Windows vista ultimate SP1, and since two days the automatic updates aren't working anymore, I get this error : "WindowsUpdate_80070424" "WindowsUpdate_dt000".

     

    I've checked the BITS service, it's running, I've also re-registered it (regsvr32 wuaueng.dll with administrator rights) , and it doesn't change a lot (only the notification in the status bar disapear ... until windows tries for the next time the automatic update).

     

    I don't see any error related to this event in the event viewer, and according the windows update log, the last one that worked was an update for windows defender, 10 days ago, the KB915597.

     

    I've also tested a comand file with these commands :

     

    net stop cryptsvc
    net stop wuauserv

    It doesn't fix the problem, the only result is loosing the history of windows updates.

     

    Anyone has an idea ?

  • If you are getting your updates from Windows Updates online then you should post this question in the Vista forum. This forum is dedicated to Software Update distribution via System Center Configuration Manager 2007.

     

    Here's the Vista forums:

    Strange... I'm seeing this post from within the forum mentioned.

     

    Anyway, I too have started getting this error message, and I can't update.

  • I have the same problem.  The service that you are suggesting is not applicable to me.

     

    What should I do?

    always error 80070424 and no update in installed history...

  • In the end, and after several contacts with the technichal support, it apeared than the only way to fix the problem was in reinstalling windows on itsalef, in the repair mode. After that, it started to work well again

     

     

     

    Saturday, August 09, 2008 6:08 PM
  • I initiated contact with MS Support.

    After many attempts, they provided a solution that worked.

    I'm going to reproduce it below but please note: I don't know how generic this solution is so please only attempt as a last resort, and also seek the advice of a Microsoft MVP before attempting to use it:


    "

    Suggestion:

     

    1. Download the file from the attachment.

     

    2. Extract the file to the desktop, right click on the wuauserv.reg and select the Merge option from menu.

     

    3. Reboot the system and then try to install the updates in the system."


    As I'm unable to attach the file, note that it is intended to be merged in your registry to reset/add the necessary functions.


    I'm happy to send you the file should you wish to try it.


    E-mail piboutATgmail.com

    Saturday, August 09, 2008 10:03 PM
  • N.B. - MVP's and MS Staff.

    I feel that the OP has been let down by being informed that a complete Windows reinstall was necessary.


    Please see the solution referred above, which was provided for me and consider heightening general awareness of that solution.

    Thank you very much. Have been trying to get the WindowsUpdate_80070424 WindowsUpdate_dt000 errors fixed for hours now and this finally did the trick.

    Turned out that, despite up to date virusscanner (and a good one at that, NOD32), I managed to get infected with a virus. Update of my virusscanner found the infected files and deleted them, but not before the virus disabled some services in Vista. I am adding the found files and virusdescriptions so someone that is looking for this information will find it more easily:

    \Windows\system32\shrhost.exe    probably a variant of Win32/SdBot trojan    cleaned by deleting - quarantined       
    \AppData\Local\Temp\kb0.125.exe - probably a variant of Win32/SdBot trojan - cleaned by deleting - quarantined [1]
    \NERO7962\Toolbar.exe - Win32/Toolbar.AskSBar application - cleaned by deleting - quarantined [1]

    Not sure how its working for you guys??? Did anyone have any success with vista 64bit ultimate?? I have been trying this and many others and none seems to be working fine. I have initiated a contact with MS for this and hopefully will be able to resolve the issue. This Error code indirectly is not letting me install VS2008 dev express as it always fail with the same error code.
    Sunday, November 23, 2008 5:10 PM
  • I used your first step, and it waid it was successful.  However, when I went to install the updates, they still gave me an error.  So I tried step two, and recieved a message like "The modual "wuaueng.dll" was loaded but the call to DLLRegisterserver failed with error code "0X80070005".

    Do you have anymore suggestions?
    Wednesday, December 03, 2008 7:23 PM
  • Doc Lang,

     

     You need to run this under administrator command prompt. To do so, go to all programs -- accessories -- right click on command prompt and select "run as administrator" option

    Thursday, December 04, 2008 12:26 AM
  • I followed  all of the directions to the letter.  I've even tried shutting down that blasted thing and restarting it.  Nothing
    Thursday, December 04, 2008 5:09 PM
  • Absolute GENIUS! Thank you soooo much! The Vista people need to hire you!

     

    Saturday, December 06, 2008 3:30 AM
  • The second step is not working fine in my system and give me a error mesage "0x80070005" what to do next?????
    Friday, December 26, 2008 2:02 AM
  •  I believe I ahve also incountered this virus... After the first time Update was disabled I used the "solution" chaxx proposed and it seemed to work, it even downloaded some updates. Upon restart Windows Defender found a backdoor with a name similar to what you mentioned and deleted it.
     
    Now Im not even getting an error code. It just says Update Failed

    Is there any way to re-installed these damaged componants?
    Wednesday, January 14, 2009 3:53 AM
  • This does not help for Vista 64 bit users. Any Suggestions????

    1. Open Administrative Tools by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel,
    and then clicking Administrative Tools.
    2. Double-click Services. If you are prompted for an administrator password or
    confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    3. Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Stop.
    4. Click start, then click all programs, then click accessories, then right click command prompt and choose to run as administrator.
