Re: "windows could not search for new updates" (code:8024402C)
The download center won't left me download anything, when I click the
"download" or "continue" buttons I get redirected to "page load error" (in
IE) and "cannot find server" (firefox)
Also, I've been trying to use the windows update but I just keep getting
that same error code
