Windows Update Error 80240030

When you get the Windows Update error code 80240030, then you are most likely having issue with:

  • Can't update your windows. Windows Update fails.
  • Can't access your proxy setting in MSIE. IE crashes once you click the "LAN setting".
  • IE can't access Internet (thru proxy).
I'm having all these issues since I upgrade to IE9. And here I find the solution to fix/repair  the 80240030 error for me:
  1. Open command prompt (with Administrator mode).
  2. Type "netsh winhttp reset proxy"
  3. Type "net stop wuauserv"
  4. Type "net start wuauserv"
It does works in Windows 7 (32-bit & 64-bit) too. Enjoy!
