Windows Update Error code 80240038 on Windows 7 IE8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • WIndows update fails with "Error Code: 80240038 on Windows 7, IE8" regardless of whether the update is initiated by Microsoft's update website or via "Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update".

    This is occurring on one of 78 new workstations that were implemented over a month ago.

    Having read a forum on Egghead, I reconfigures the "Windows Update" service from "Automatic Delayed Start"  to run "Automatically" and experienced no success.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
