Windows Security Automatic Update

Hi!

 

Few days back I notice that there was a windows security alert. When I click on the icon, under windows security center menu. It states that the Automatic Updating was turn off. I tried to turn it on so that i can install the lates windows update. An error code prompt me saying that the error code was 80070424. I even tried using the Help menu... But I still can't solve the problem. I even tried installing from microsoft website... and this message came up

 

Microsoft Update could not be installed on your computer

Make sure that you log on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group, and then try again.

More troubleshooting options
  • If your computer is connected to a network and the problem persists, contact your system administrator to see if your Microsoft Update settings are managed using group policy.
  • If your computer is not connected to a network, or if your system administrator has not disabled Microsoft Update, check if the Windows Update service is disabled or stopped. To see how to start a service, search Help and Support on your computer.

Note: If you experience problems with installing Microsoft Update, you can continue to get updates for your computer by going to Windows Update in Control Panel.


[Error number: 0x80070424]
Honestly have I have tried following all the instructions above. Still I can't solve the problem! On top of that, I also tried scanning my computer with an anti virus software, yet there was no threat found. Not too sure what to do next.
Plllleeeeeaaaseeee! Help.

Re: Windows Security Automatic Update

Validate Windows here

 

 

Re-register the Windows Update DLL with the commands below

 

 

Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

 

 

Type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.

 

 

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll

Attempt to run Windows Update

 

 

Also try the Windows Installer link for Non-Vista machines from Microsoft.

Re: Windows Security Automatic Update

Hi!

 

Sorry again.... manage to find the RUN command.... did exactly as you have advice me too, but it was only successful up to regsvr32 wuapi.dll. When i tried to type in the second command.... an error report came out saying that The module "wuaueng.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

 

What should I do next. Kindly advice

Re: Windows Security Automatic Update

Hi!

 

Did the copy and paste technique.... only regsvr32 wups.dll and regsvr32 wups2.dll was ok.... the rest of the commands some came out wt the same error report as b4 ( 0x80070005) and some with failed to load ... asking to debug and check binary files, dependant dll files.

 

Not too sure what it means...

Re: Windows Security Automatic Update

Hi!

 

Thank you for the web link.... did as advice.... but still does not solve my problem. It gvs another reporting error

 

The module "QMGR.DLL" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegistryServer was
not found.

Make sure that "QMGR.DLL" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

 

There is this person who also face the same problem as I do. He posted it on the 7th of July... but there was no reply for the solution ... 😞

Re: Windows Security Automatic Update

Last hope is a repair install or a clean install.
