I need help
Can anyone help me? I have XP SP2 and when I go to microsoft's web site to
update, I use the express button to search for high priority updates and it
just searches with no results and then freezes. I checked my download
history, since I have auto update and it showed I have tons of failure to
updates that have been going on for months. Here is One of the Errors...
Code: 0x80246005

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED

RE: I need help
Hello Lee,

0x80246005
SUS_E_DM_NONETWORK
Network connection was not available

Try this solution provided by TaurArian
<http://taurarian.mvps.org/WU_XP/0x80246005.htm>

There has been success with renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder:

Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:

Click Start, click Run, type: %systemroot%
Click OK.
Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.
Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.

Try running the Updates again.

Always remember if in doubt, you can always copy the contents of the
Datastore folder to another area on your hard drive as a backup.

You cannot install some updates or programs

Good luck

I hope this post is helpful.

Let us know how it works ┬║ut.
