    Getting error code 8024402F while updating software through Windows Update on Windows 7

    I have recently installed Windows 7 into my system and downloaded different software too. When I try to update software using Windows Update, I keep getting the error code 8024402F. Is there any way available to avoid this error?

    Go to the bottom right part of the desktop and click the time and date displayed over there. A window will pop up on the screen after that from which click the “Change date and time settings” link. You can then find ‘Internet Time’ tab on that window. Press that tab and locate ‘Change Settings’ button. By pressing on that button, you can view ‘Update Now’ button. Click the ‘OK’ button afterwards and quit the window. You can then try to install the update and see whether the error has disappeared or not.

    Hello.
    Windows Update Error 8024402F can be caused due to many reasons (Ex: temporary connection error with Microsoft Update server).
    As it is a Windows Update issue, I strongly recommend you to run the Fix It tools which are applicable for this issue.

    Click here to run First Fix It tool.

    Click here to run Second Fix It tool.

    Upon running both the Fix It tools, restart your computer and try to install Windows Updates again. Check if you are still receiving the same error message.

    To check for the Windows updates, log on to the url http://www.microsoftupdate.com/

    If the issue persists with the same error message, I would recommend you to Reset the Windows Update Components.

    Please let me know if you need any further clarification.

    Regards
    Vincent Daniel

    Hi,

    Possibly the error message displayed on screen is due to an invalid time stamp on the update downloaded.

    Right Click on the TIME display at the extreme right corner of Taskbar.

    A box will pop up, Click ADJUST DATE TIME and then click INTERNET TIME , next click CHANGE SETTINGS and then UPDATE NOW to update the time settings for windows.

    After updation EXIT. REBOOT.

    Thanks.
