Solution for Windows defender was unable to complete the update:0x8024402c
and no update avalaible

I wish this post will help some of you
Windows XP SP2 french
Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1051.0
Engine Version: 1.1.1185.0
Signature Version: 1.0.0.0
ISA 2000
WSUS deploy inside my network This was the reason for the 0x8024402c error
message and the no update avalaible


When I was connected to my network, clicking on the update button in Windows
defender beta 2 It said connecting to update, then no update avalaible.
Strange 39 day with no update.
I've connected my PC directly on the internet without proxy, disabling XP
firewall, service WUAUSERV (automatic update) was enable. And I get the
error" Windows defender was unable to complete the update:0x8024402c "

The reason is: Because I have a WSUS server, my computer query my WSUS
server for an update. When my comuter is in my network it query the WSUS
server for an update. If my comuter is directly connected to the internet (at
home) it query my WSUS server but it can find it and i received the
0x8024402c error!
I need to tell to my WSUS server to download the update from microsoft (in
the WSUS server, option, synchronisation option, modify product, check the
box for windows defender, force a synchronisation in WSUS, wait for download
to occur, force a synchronisation on my pc "wuauclt /detectnow") and then my
computer is now able to update is definition file and Engine version
So now march 6 2006 I use
Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1051.0
Engine Version: 1.1.1186.0
Signature Version: 1.14.1288.5

Going on the windows update web site will probably work to update your
definition file because it will bypass (or not query) the WSUS server deploy
inside the network

If you dond't know wat is WSUS (Windows Server Update Services) read this
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/updateservices/default.mspx
fully manage the distribution of updates that are released through Microsoft
Update to computers in your network. It's a patch deployement server a bit
like SMS (Systems Management Server) or SUS

In GPEDIT.MSC I disable local updates through WSUS server, and automatically
was started downloading. When updating was finished, I see error message
0x80240016c "Unknown command for this device". But when I run manually update
again, immediatelly was displayed, there are no new updates available and
Defender displayed, that actually updates loaded...

I'm getting the same error message, but do not really understand this enough
to fix the problem. Can anyone explain it using simpler terms?

If you are on a corporate network that manages patches and security updates,
Windows Defender may not update through the automatic feature within the
program.

However--if you are able to visit Windows Update or Microsoft Update from
the machine, Windows Defender Signature updates should be offered.
