Is anyone here familiar with error ‘80246008’?

Hi, there is anyone here familiar with error '80246008'? I keep getting it whenever I try to update windows.

Also, my Windows firewall doesn’t work; it keeps telling me to "Update your firewall settings". It shows up each time I click an option. When I tried clicking "Use recommend settings" it takes about 30 seconds of loading, but in the end nothing good happens.

I've already tried many other fixes I Google but none have worked. I am lost on what to do.

Do you have any good suggestions?

Hi Good day!

The error is having a problem on updates. You might want to change the two service setting, the BITS and Windows Event Log. After we do this we need to restart each services.

First thing we should do is to restart BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service).

To change or restart the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS):

  1. We need to go to Administrative tools, First Click the 'Start' button , and then click 'Control Panel', click 'System and Maintenance', and then clicking 'Administrative Tools'.

  2. Open 'Services'. You must be an administrator to do this.

  3. In the Services select and right-click the 'Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)' service, and then select 'Properties'.

  4. Go to General tab, next to Startup tab, be sure that you will select Automatic (Delayed Start).

  5. Next to Service status, check to see if the service is started if not click start.

To change or restart the Windows Event Log service:

  1. We need to go to Administrative tools, First Click the 'Start' button , and then click 'Control Panel', click 'System and Maintenance', and then clicking 'Administrative Tools'.

  2. Open 'Services'. You must be an administrator to do this.

  3. In the 'Service' select and right-click the Windows Event Log service, and then go to Properties.

  4. Go to General tab, next to Startup type, be sure that you select Automatic.

  5. Next to Service status, check to see if the service is started if not click start.

Its windows XP sp3 error and you need to reinstall the windows to solve this problem. You can try another window that contains the full version of the window or change the DVD/CD and try with a new one and i am sure you will be able to solve your problem.
