Windows Update - error 8024402C

I'm trying to update Windows XP Pro. I get an error 8024402C coming up.
I've tried all of Microsoft's suggestions but to no avail. I am not going
through a Proxy server. I've tried restoring IE settings, but nothing works.
Please advise.

Here's what works for our company:
1. Click on Start, and then click Run.
2. Type cmd in the Open box to get a DOS prompt.
3. Type "net stop wuauserv" without the quotes at the command prompt, and press
Enter.
4. Delete (or put in recycle bin) the contents of
C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution (but not the SoftwareDistribution folder)

5. Type net start wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
6. Now try Windows Update again.

Thanks a bunch Taurarian, it worked like a charm!
The one thing new that I did was delete everything in the Software
Distribution folder and that seemed to do it.
Thanks Again!
