    Updater has Stopped Working?

    I randomly get this error whenever I guess the computer auto checks for updates? Like one error every hour or so.
    Its getting really annoying and when I press for details this is what pop up bellow:

    Stopped working

    I can't get the updater to work on any of my computers. I keep getting error 80240440.

    Usually that indicates a DNS or windows update catalog problem. What does your \Windows\WindowsUpdate.log file say?

    I don't see a file like that anywhere.
