Code80246008
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:01:10 PM »
Not sure if I can get help with this, but it's worth a shot. For quite some time now I've been trying to update my computer but I keep receiving this error message with code80246008. I've already done what MS suggests, but still no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Try

First do the method one and try Windows update, then if the error gets shown again, try method two.

Make sure that before you do this fix, that you first back up your registry just in case.
