Clean up Windows Update Store

Downloading the Windows updates can lead to inconsistencies that lead to the Windows Update Agent finding incorrect data in the Windows Update folders. To eliminate the error code 0x8024000E you should first of all the contents of the folder

C: Windows SoftwareDistribution

delete or simply rename the folder. Since this folder is permanently accessible, you must first stop these Windows services. The easiest way to do this is via the Windows service management “services.msc” . The following services must be stopped.


    • Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)
    • Cryptographic Services (Cryptsvc)
    • Windows Update Service (Wuauserv)

After these services have all ended, you can now rename the folder ” C: Windows SoftwareDistribution ” or delete all contents of this folder.

Then the stopped Windows services must be started again. Then you should check whether the update error 0x8024000E continues to occur.
