Dear All, Can you help please?
Automatic Updates problem.
I have recentl upgraded to the new update Microsoft Automatic Update version and ever since have been having problems. I have been able in the interim download the necessary critical updates etc directly from the Microsoft site, so the good news is the computer is up to date.
I have been to the Microsft site and viewed numerous papers and entered the error codes into their search/ gone to Google etc and after many hours of searching for the answer - but to no avail as they either do not recognise the error code or the direction to fix is not pertinent.
FYI, I am running Win2000 (SP4) and IE 6.0 (SP1)
I have uninstalled Windows update an started again. It still goes through all the correct scanning, tries to download and then reports with a failed download:-
Error Code: 0x80246008
Try to install the update again, or request help from one of the following resources.
