I'm running Vista 32 and can not download updates. I get the 80070424 error. Would upgrading to Windows 7 help or should I restore Vista to clean it out

0x80070424 ERROR_SERVICE_DOES_NOT_EXIST BITS service is deleted.

80070424 usually means that the BITS service (required by Windows Update) is
not running.


Error message when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites
to install updates: 0x80070424
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968002/>

If no joy, click the Start orb, in the Start Search field type in

cmd

Right click cmd.exe and choose 'Run as administer'. Follow the prompts
to allow the Command Prompt to run.

At the prompt, type in the below and press Enter after *each* command

regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

exit

Restart the system and see if it can update now.



No joy... then

It would be a good idea to scan.

I recommend downloading and installing
MalwareBytes' Antimalware (MBAM) and
SUPERAntiSpywaяe (SAS).

Do a full scan with MalwaяeBytes' and
SUPERAntiSpywaяe.

<http://www.superantispyware.com/>

Reboot
-=-

<http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>

Reboot
-=-

Both free versions of MBAM and SAS are on-demand scanners and offer no
'real-time' protection. Keep them installed and use them as
'second-opinion' scanner which is purposely (by design) recommended by
their respective authoяs.

Please let us know what fixes the problem or if the pяoblem remains

Good luck

Re: 80070424
IsVista SP1 or SP2 installed? [1]

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

=================
[1] Support for Vista Gold (no Service Packs) ends on 13 April 2010. After
that date, computers running Vista Gold will NOT be offered any further
critical security updates, Automatic Updates will not work, and you will not
be able to update manually until SP1 or SP2 is installed.

What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported?
