Windows Cannot Search For New Updates Problem

Code 8024402C

The frustrating error Code 8024402C is popping up on many Windows 7 installations. If your “Try Again” button simply results in the same error message repeating itself, try the following.

Instead of click the “Try Again” button, click the link at the bottom to “Check online for updates from Microsoft Update”.

This usually results in a few seconds of “green bar” and then a window that shows you that updates have been found.  From here you can install updates as normal.
