    Hi Pasquale,

    I was looking for an answer to the same problem. Same version number Vista.
    Same error code 0x8024400a when I check for updates for both Vista and
    Windows Defender.

    I had same problem and this helped

    -Stop the "Windows update" service.
    -Create a new directory "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.old"
    -Move contents of "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" into that new folder
    (cut & paste)
    -Start "Windows update" service.

    Now update should work again. At least for me it did.

    You can delete the .old folder
