Windows 7 error messages
Over the past few weeks, I've been having an issue with my Windows updates on two of my machines. Both of them are running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. One of the machines is brand new, while the other is about a year old. Every time I check for Windows updates in the Control Panel, I keep getting this message: error code 8024402F

Can someone tell me what this error message is? How can I resolve this issue?

I did a quick Google search on the error code, and found MANY suggestions for how to correct this problem. In fact, there were so very many different responses, I wouldn’t know where to begin trying to figure out which one might be the magic one for you. You could try this yourself, or feel free to use THIS link, which has a few of the best options I found.
