Windows Updates (Win. 7) Reward $3
Created by Tredd, 230 days ago, 643 views

Inability to get updates on brand new windows 7 computer, will try for 48 + hours and still no ability. Have went through the Microsoft catalog, and have been trying every alternative. Looking for the magic button to press, so far I am clueless. Finally have an 0x8024001e error code after 72 hour attempt.

Hi There!
If you want windows 7 update to work quickly then , all you need to do is update your internet explorer manually:
Download from here : http://www.filehippo.com/download_internet_explorer_windows_7_64/ for 64 bits windows
http://www.filehippo.com/download_internet_explorer_windows_7/ for 32 or 86 bits windows
It will take time though , but after you finished the installation of internet explorer...and reboot the computer ...windows updates
begins to work.
If still not then you need to manually enable it from services.msc. Here is how:
1. Type services.msc in star menu and press enter
2. windows will appear as below:


3. There you search for windows update by scrolling down....and you will see such things:



4. So your windows update was disabled by default or you might have disabled it....so go to properties....



5. There you change startup type to automatic or automatic delayed start as per your preferences........and you will see


6. There you see service status : stopped.....so click on start ... and small windows will appear and start the service....then close all programs and reboot ...the windows update must work by now.
