    Windows Update Won't Update

    Windows Update won't connect to Updater. Microsoft's directions to fix a 0x8024401C error reference a search for Troubleshooting, or accessing System and Security in the Control Panel. Neither of those options appear on my Win8 system. Suggestions?

    When you open control panel if you look at the upper right corner you will see "View by". Switch to large icons and you can find troubleshooting easily. The Windows Update trouble shooter is listed there.

    Or just do a Windows key + W and type trouble. Then click on Troubleshooting in the reults.

    I struggled with this as well. My problem was resolved when I entered update through the update program/app/settings found by doing a search for windows update in settings and using the tile that was returned. I could not update using update found in control panel itself. Odd, I know, but true.
