    Hello laramietim, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    That error means that the .bat file was unable to reset your Windows Update since it was not able to stop the bits (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) service.

    You might see if you may be able to manually stop and the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service. If it won't stop normally, then you could see if it may after restarting the computer, or doing this while in safe mode.

    Services - Start, Stop, and Disable in Windows 10


    If successful, try running the .bat again.
    I was successful in stopping the BITS but when I reran the program, I got this error message:

    "Failed to reset windows update due to wuauserv service failing to stop"

    Do you have any other ideas?

    Repeat the above, but this time for the Windows Update service instead.

    I tried this and the program seemed to run (it closed before I could read the whole window) but when I restart the computer and try to update windows I get the same 0x8024002e error. When I ran the windows update troubleshooter after this I got "Service registration is missing or corrupt" and then it says "fixed". But again I get the same error code when I try to update windows. Any other ideas?

    laramietim,

    When the .bat file runs and closes the command prompt, then it means that it successfully reset Windows Update.

    Unfortunately, resetting Windows Updates does not fix all Windows Update errors.

    Please go ahead and create a new thread for your Windows Update 0x8024002e error in the Windows Updates and Activation forum to see what we can do to help.

    Hi Brink, thanks for the BAT file. Although it seemed to work, after I restarted, Windows update is continuously searching for updates but never finds anything. The 'checking for updates' dots just loop over and over.

    It seems the service is stopped and is unable to restart again.

    C:\Windows\system32>net start wuauserv
    The Windows Update service is starting.
    The Windows Update service could not be started.


    A system error has occurred.


    System error 1067 has occurred.


    The process terminated unexpectedly.

    Hello Bistroengine, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Sometimes it may do that for a while then suddenly show properly again on its on. This can happen when there's a very large update available. Usually letting it sit for up to 20 minutes would be long enough to tell.

    If not, then while it's still spinning its wheels, manually stop and start the Windows Update service.

    Thanks! When I tried this I get this error...

    I should add that the service was already stopped when I checked. Trying to restart it yielded the error below.

    C:\Windows\system32>net start wuauserv
    The Windows Update service is starting.
    The Windows Update service could not be started.

    In that case, see if restarting Windows may help.
