RE: Windows Updates
http://taurarian.mvps.org/WU_XP/0x8024402f.htm

If you have a Wireless Router:-
In the security tab, make sure you aren't blocking AcitveX.

other possible reasons :-

1. Internet Explorer temporary files corrupted.
2. Background Intelligent and Event Log service not started
3. SoftwareDistribution folder has become corrupted
4. You may need to re-registered some dlls files
5. You may need to add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone:
6. Spyware.
7. Third party programs running in background.
8. ActiveX controls corrupted

Suggestion 1:-
Clearing Temporary Internet files, cookies and history in Internet Explorer

Tools>Internet Options>General
You’ll see Delete Cookies, Delete files, Delete History

NB: "Delete all offline content", will delete all files needed to browse the
websites offline.

Reboot and try Windows Update again.

Suggestion 2:-
Check that the Background Intelligent Transfer Service to is set to
Automatic and verify the Status is Started.

Click Start, Choose Run, and in the Run box, type services.msc, Click OK
Locate the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service, and right-click
to select it.
Select Properties, and in the Startup Type list, select Automatic. Verify
the service Status is Started. Click OK.
Check that the Set Event Log service is set to Automatic and verify that the
Status is Started
Click Start, Choose Run, and in the Run box, type services.msc, Click OK.
Locate the Event Log service, and right-click to select it.
Select Properties., and in the Startup type list, select Automatic. Verify
the Service status is Started. Click OK.
Register qmgr.dll and qmgrprxy.dll
Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 qmgr.dll, Click OK.
Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll,
Click OK.

Suggestion 3:-
It is possible that the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder have
become corrupted, so try 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.

Please note that your update history is contained in the "datastore" folder
and when you rename the Software Distribution folder, the history is lost but
it's not important. You can if need be, copy the contents back from the
renamed softwareDistribution.old folder. Losing the history of Windows
Updates is not important.

Suggestion 4:-
Certain files may have become unregistered, and you will need to register
them again:-

Click Start, Choose Run and in the Run box, type regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll,
Click OK.

Do the same for the other files:-

wucltui.dll
wuaueng.dll
wuapi.dll
jscript.dll
MSXML.DLL
MSXML2.DLL
MSXML3.DLL

Suggestion 5:-
Add Windows Update to the Trusted Sites Zone:

Please note that Security settings in Internet Explorer must be set to
Medium or lower for ActiveX files to correctly pass to your computer.
Only the Web sites listed in Internet Explorer's Trusted Sites Zone will be
affected by the lowering of Security settings. Your current security settings
for all other Web sites will remain as they are currently configured.

Open Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options, Click
Security. Click Trusted Sites Zone. Click Sites.

Clear the Require server verification (https for all sites in this zone
check box.

Use the Add button next to the Add this Web site to the zone box to add the
following sites:

http://*.update.microsoft.com
https://*.update.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com

Suggestion 7:-
Make sure you haven’t got anything blocking Windows Update like Nortons,
Zonealarm etc

Also make sure you don’t have a Web Accelerator working in the background
such as NetZerio, HiSpeed, Speedband etc.

Suggestion 8:
If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article -

The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan
for updates when you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack
2 or of Windows XP Service Pack 1
