  • Obviously error 0x8024401c can be the result of a number of causes. It crept into my Win 10 installation after upgrading to ver. 1703. After trying all recommended WU troubleshooting recommendations I found online including the ones above, (manually, Windows WU-troubleshooter, resetting WU services and components, fiddling with regedit and gpedit.msc and all network settings) I finally reset the properties of my network adapter by blanking the box for protocol version 6 and relying on version 4 only. Voila, Deliverance at last. That immediately not only fixed my Win update tribulations, it also fixed slow internet connections, allowed for much faster loading of U-Tube movies, it was as if all network settings had been kickstarted. I sure hope this might help others as well
