Windows Update Error 80246008


Recommended Posts

I keep getting this error right after I try to install the updates, but I keep getting this error. Recently I got rid of a bunch of viruses that have affected Windows Update, but now even if the Windows Update is back on, I cant update. I followed the suggestions set up by Microsoft and it didnt help: http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows-vista/Windows-Update-error-80246008 and I did not find the Backround Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) and when I tried to reset the Windows Event Log, it gave me the error "Windows could not stop the Windows Event Log Service on Local Computer, Error 5: Access is denied". Is there anyway to fix this problem?

Is this the same computer for which MrC is already helping you in the malware removal section >>HERE<< ?

If so, to minimize confusion, it's best to stick with that topic until he gives you the "all clear". :)

If there are other, NON-malware issues remaining, he may refer you back here for additional help.

Thanks for your patience,
