Fixing Error 0x8024002e in Windows 10

But we have already heard that this bug happens because the Windows Update Program does not work correctly, so let’s see how to address this problem now.

Method 1: Changing Windows Update Property to Automatic

If your Windows Update Property is set to manual, then in Windows 10, you can face this error code 0x8024002e, so we’ll change it to Automatic. Follow the steps indicated below.

  • Manager of Open Mission.
  • Tap the Utilities tab and, at the bottom of the window, find Open Services.
  • A new window will now open open, scroll down, and locate “Windows Update” from the folder. Double-clicking on it unlocks its estate.
  • Pick Automatic for Form Startup as seen in the image below. Click on Apply, click Start, click Ok.

Tweaking Windows update properties

Now go to Windows Update to check for changes to see whether or not you are still having the error.
If this doesn’t resolve the error, then restart your PC to make the changes, and then try again.

Method 2: Disable Antivirus Program

If you already have an antivirus built on your Windows, then you might want to uninstall it first of all to see if that helps. Windows 10 is still new and many antivirus programmes will clash with it, but most enterprises have made modifications to their antivirus apps to function seamlessly with Windows 10.
Simply uninstall your antivirus and search for changes to find out whether it blocks your device from upgrading and shows an error of 0x8024002e.

The Update: Virus can be prevented

If your Computer is infected by any malware, it may prohibit you from upgrading your machine. If none of the approaches above works, you may want to run Spyhunter to figure out whether or not your Windows 10 PC is affected.
