    i have formatted a friend's laptop and installed windows 7 starter
    but am facing a very strange problem
    i cannot update the system
    when im checking for updates an error code 8024402f appears and telling me that it cannot check for updates
    when this problem came after a fresh install i thought the daz loader was a problem so i uninstalled the loader but same error appears. i tried microsoft fix it , microsoftupdate cab but the same thing
    after a lot of hours of googleing nothing solved this problem
    so i re-formatted it but still the same thing
    my windows 7 are untouched , i have used only eing removal for windows 7 home premium x86 just to have the option to install the starter
    please help me

    try turning auto updates off then turn them back on again ?
    I have sometimes had issues like this on fresh re-installs.
    Also try some manual downloads from microsoft and see if they install ie. SP1 to see if this kicks in the auto updating process ??

    my windows 7 has by default the SP 1 (media refresh)
    give me a link for an update which you believe that will work
