    Win8 CP Build 8250 Update Error 8024401C


    Good morning. This is a good one and will probably require the time and patience of Brink. Installed Win8 CP build 8250 last week and have noticed that Windows Defender will not update. Reason being that the Windows Update Agent has seemed to crashed. It updated the first batch of apprx. 27 Updates but when I currently check for new Updates, it freezes for apprx. 90 secs. and says that there are no more important updates. Imagine that! I'm not connected to Microsoft's PC Servers and error 8024401C is highlighted. I understand that this is a known issue with Win8 CP and largely due to Proxy servers. Needless to say, I have NO Proxy! I can already see that this will be an irreconcilable problem. I've seen this once before in Win7 Enterprise and I scratched the OS alltogether as a bailout. Not to worry - This OS is timebombed for Jan 16 2013 and I won't sweat the details. Microsoft will say that because it's a Beta is why the issue presents itself. I guess that it's no surprise that I don't give Microsoft the time of day nor any proceeds. Let's climb the ladder. Where's Brink ? I'm gonna need a senior Admin for this one. Goodday.

    Can't be done. I'm running with a Pentium 4 CPU that has NO NX capability and anything after build 8250 must have it or else you'll get a freeze at the first restart screen. This sucks - I know what I'll need to do and I refuse to do it. Put a new WUA into place. Tried it once before on Win7 Enterprise and said that I'll never try it again. And, I'm good on my word.
