Windows Update Error 0x8024000C

Today i discovered a solution for a problem with my own laptop. Windows update comes with the error 0x8024000C when i manually click on Windows Update.
Today the windows 7 solution center told me windows updates could not install. When i take a look in the windows update.log, located at c:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log, i saw the error: WARNING: Returning due to error from GetDownloadProgressUx, error = 0x8024000C

When i visit customers, i always need to fill in a proxy server. This was exactly the problem, and as i don’t frequently use Internet Explorer this problem occured. I was able to solve it by simply deleting the folowing registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections
Then i restarted the windows update service and checked for updates. yet another problem solved 🙂
