    I couldn't run windows update automatically. If I run windows update from the Start menu, it will come back with "error code 8024402C or 80244019 Windows Update Encounter an Unknown Error".

    If I try to type in windows update address to go to the website, it will be rerouted to msn.com

    Meanwhile, update for Windows defense has also failed.

    My IE also has been running slow.

    Any suggestion that I can update windows and solve all the problem?

    Thank you very much,
