Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
When running Windows Update, Express or Custom, displays an error message (0x8024001D) saying "The page can not be displayed" error occurs.
The resolve is to rename the SoftwareDistribution folder:
Stop the automatics Updates Service
Go to Start>Run and type in Services.msc
Click OK or press Enter
In the right pane of the services window, right-click on Automatic Updates and then select Stop.
Navigate to C:Windows (C:WINNT if using Windows 2000) folder, locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDOLD
Restart the Automatic Updates Service by re-opening the Service window, Right-Click on Automatic Updates and then select Start
NOTE: Renaming the SoftwareDistrbution Folder removes your current update history listing.
