Error number: 0x80248013

I am encountering this error on the Windows XP Update site. It occurs after the scanning of either Express or Custom Updates.
I can find nothing on the Windows site relating to this error and Google shows a few foreign language replies.
Does anyone have any idea how I can fix it?

Brilliant oldbeefer2. That worked a treat - how did you find it?

  chub_tor 13:08 10 Oct 2006

Looks like I resolved too soon. It worked the first time but now I have Error number: 0x80244022. Do you have any other magic links?

  chub_tor 13:52 10 Oct 2006

OK that last error seems to have been a blip - perhaps a Microsoft Server error and all is OK now.

One thing that I should add for anyone else following oldbeefer2's link there is an error in the instructions for getting to the SoftwareDistribution file. There needs to be a space between %windir% and SoftwareDistribution or the folder isn't found.

According to MS news group many people are getting this error including Europe. With some the fix did not work,have you now been able to get the updates?

chub_tor. would you believe, I copied the error code and pasted into google!

  chub_tor 18:43 10 Oct 2006

Lettervanman - yes it worked for me and my wife's (networked) computers. Updates are OK now.

oldbeefer2 - I was wondering why Google didn't work for me and then thinking back I believe that I tried MSN Search followed by Dogpile. Neither of them showed your link. Next time I'll try Google first.

Fix seems to have worked for me, thanks

  Lettervanman 19:09 10 Oct 2006

Thanks for that,I tried the fix and it now returns Error 0x80244022 as you had,or reports no updates needed!
I think the servers are overloaded.
