Windows Update Error Code 80244019

#1
Hi. I am running the public beta of Vista, and when I try to use the windows
update control panel I get the message Error(s) Found: Code 80244019.

Does anybody know what this error code means? Has anybody seen it before?

Thanks. I'll try it again from time to time to seek if it works. Is there
anything I can check on my computer to see if the problem is at my end?

The likely cause would be your network connection if its on your end, so
make sure that Internet Explorer is not working in off line mode.

I've been having the same error when I try to run Windows update on a Vista Ultimate machine setup for use with our SBS 2003 server running ISA 2004.

The Solution that I found is this.

When you setup Vista for use with a domain it creates the following regkey with a subkey etc ( policy ) that sets Vista to look for a WSUS server.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://serversbs"
"WUStatusServer"="http://serversbs"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000004
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000001
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001


When I deleted this key and rebooted my PC windows update was working.


Hope this was somehow usefull

:D

Sorry, I know this is kind of an old thread.

The easiest way to fix this is to pull up Regedit and navigate to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate\AU]

like nosfera7u said, only select this dword value:

"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001"

and change the value to 0.

Reboot, then try to update again.

Slight variant on what nosfera7u said, but since I plan on someday using an WUS, I don't want to delete the keys entirely.

This happened to me on a Vista Home Premium HP Pavilion. It had been spyware infected.

I ran HiJack and found entries that redirected DNS entries from what they should be to ones set by whatever hijacked the pc. I fixed those. After trying again, I got a slightly different error code that meant that the firewall was blocking the site ms uses to do the auto updates. I added those sites to the exceptions list under the security settings in IE and it worked after that.

Do a major spyware scan with whatever you trust. I used Counterspy. Download and use the HiJack utility to find out all the weird crap that the spyware did to the pc and use the HiJack fix utility to fix those entries.

No, never did try that. I guess I'll try that next time since the problem is resolved now. Do you feel that Windows Defender is an effective anti-spyware tool?

since I happen to be near-paranoid when it comes to installing anything ( or
even saving non-executable files for that matter ) in my system,I have not
yet come across any threats to my pc (Windows Vista Ultimate x86 with SP1)
so that I can know whether windows defender is doing it's job
properly.However,should you feel defender to be not upto-the-mark,I am sure
little else probably beats windows live onecare,the comprehensive one-stop
pc security and maintenance package.Use it to believe it.and no,it won't
consume high resources.

Thanks for the info, this does seem to be it. I can click on the link below the main update buttons to "Check for updates online". However I am trying to set up a WSUS on our network but not having much luck. Anyone know a good place to look for WSUS for Dummies? I can't seem to make computers show up in the WSUS console, however this Vista Business 32 bit computer has the registry entries shown above (but for our network).

The one non-standard option I've chosen in the WSUS install is to not use the standard port 80 as this would then piggyback on another of our websites, that has all scripting dissabled.

I too received this error - Windows Update Error Code 80244019

I try to use the windows update control panel I get the message
Error(s) Found: Code 80244019.

Not only while updating but even MS Windows is not showing up..any
suggestions - below links are not of much help.

I'm not so sure that it immediately means you have a virus.

I have Symantec Endpoint Protection loaded on my Vista Business machine that's giving me this error, and the logs for the past several weeks don't indicate any kind of suspicious file in its scanns. I'm running Trend Micro Housecall just to verify, but I don't think it's going to find anything, either.

Edit: Ok I was wondering how I got subscribed to this thread. Apparently my posted solution didn't work, at least not permanently, otherwise I wouldn't be having this problem again.

fix
Windows Vista Update 80244019
follow steps closely:
Download, install, run “simple scan” Malware removal from site below (malewarebytes.org). Immediately after rebooting start “windows update” from the control panel . . . and upgrade to “Internet Explorer 8” upgrade via google.com search as well.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Don’t go through the three weeks it took me to figure this out.
And if you’re charging people to fix their computer TEACH your customers how to “untangle the mess” on their own as a form of educational-reinvestment.
