Windows Update Problem 0x8024001D

When I goto the Windows update site to download all the updates I get the error code how do I fix it?

This 0x8024001D means " WU E INVALID UPDATE". That is, some update has non valid metadata.

1) Start > Run and type this lines. Hit ENTER key after each one:

net stop wuauserv

regsvr32 wuapi.dll

regsvr32 wups.dll

regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

regsvr32 wucltui.dll

regsvr32 msxml3.dll

net start wuauserv

Reboot Windows and go to Windows Update.

2) If this suggestion does not help, Start > Run and write net stop wuauserv

Locate in your hard disk "SoftwareDistribution" folder and delete its content
Then Start > Run and type net start wuauserv

Restart Windows and go to Windows Update.
