I received this error code, Error number: 0x8024D007 when I tried to install windows updates. I don’t know why this happens. I didn’t get any thing from Microsoft support also. Can someone suggest anything to me? Thank you.
This problem occurs when the windows update agent file Wups2.dill is registered incorrectly in the registry. Because the registry files that correspond to the Wups2.dill file are missing, update installations are unsuccessful.
Error code “0x8024D007” returns “WU_E_SETUP_REGISTRATION_FAILED” which means the Windows Update Agent could not be updated because regsvr32.exe returned an error. If you receive this error when updating Windows, try scanning your computer for viruses. Update your antivirus and run a full system scan. You can also download Sophos Virus Removal Tool. Install it on your computer and scan your machine.
It works alongside any antivirus program you may have so don’t uninstall your antivirus. If the system turns out to be clean, try to disable your antivirus and then install the Windows Update. See if this works. If this doesn’t work, restart your computer in Clean Boot state. Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.”
In the command prompt, type without quotes “msconfig” then hit Enter. In the “System Configuration Utility” window, in “General” tab, select “Selective Startup” then uncheck “Load Startup Items.” After this, select “Services” tab then click “Disable All.” Click “OK” then restart the computer.
After booting, make sure the native Windows Firewall is up. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Security Center,” and then “Windows Firewall.” In Windows Firewall, make sure “On” is selected then click “OK.” Download MicrosoftEasyFix50202.msi and run it on your computer in Aggressive mode. When it is finished, restart your computer then try installing the Windows Update again. Once the update is successful, leave the Clean Boot state.
Run “msconfig” again and select “Normal” in “General” tab then restart the computer. This should boot the computer now in Normal mode.
