RE: cannot update windows
Hello yoram,

Have a look to this:

You may receive an error message when you search for available updates on
the Windows

Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site

<http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=883821>



You may receive a "0x8024402C" error message when you scan for updates on
the Windows

<http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=900936>



When searching for available updates on the Update site, you receive the
0x8024402C error

<http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/showarticle.aspx?articleid=30&ln=en>

A misconfigured Proxy/Firewall can cause this problem. Double-check the
Proxy/Firewall settings


I hope this post is helpful.

Let us know how it works ┬║ut.
