Hey!
Windows update has been trying to install some updates
for example KB943484, but it always
fails and gives me error code 8024401B. This happens all the time.

RE: some windows updates failed
That error (8024401B) is Http status 407 - proxy authentication required.
The windows update agent runs under the context of the local system
account, so even if you have been given rights to access resources on the
internet, it may fail.

Your proxy admin should change the configuration to not require
authentication for the following:

http://download.windowsupdate.com
https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://*.update.microsoft.com
http://*.download.windowsupdate.com
http://update.microsoft.com
http://*.windowsupdate.com
http://download.microsoft.com
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://ntservicepack.microsoft.com
http://wustat.windows.com
https://*.update.microsoft.com
