    Windows Update doesn't work

    Recently I tried to use Windows Update (windowsupdate.microsoft.com) on my Win2k SP2 computer and it doesn't work anymore (it worked before). The error message is: "Update can't be installed due to unknown error (-2147024470)." I still can use updates from Download Center (www.microsoft.com/downloads). Does anybody encounter the similar problem?

    Unfortunately, not. Error message appears after download and attempt to install the update. Steps from the article make no changes. Thank you anyway.

    Could be something awry with Internet Explorer, then, or OS level. You might try the System File Checker to make sure that nothing is hosed. It takes a while to run but it can usually detect and repair problems.
