| error 8024401B.
| Your computer is connected to a network and uses a proxy server to get
| updates. Take these steps to provide your credentials and install updates.
| Click to open Windows Update.
| In the left pane, click Check for updates.
| If prompted, provide your network credentials. If Windows doesn't prompt you
| to provide credentials and you see the error code 8024401B instead, click Try
| When prompted, provide the credentials that you use to access your network.
| Windows will automatically continue the update process and notify you if you
| need to install updates.
| It is not asking to provide the network credentials. I have clicked try
| again many times. How do I provide them? The update is Cumulative Update for
| Media Center for Windows Vista (KB941229)
| Thank you!
