this is what i found

A client computer fails with a "0x8024400a" error code when it retrieves new updates from a WSUS server that is running Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1

Last Review : May 3, 2006
Revision : 2.1
SYMPTOMS
A client computer cannot receive new updates or does not appear in the Administration Console when the computer points to a Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server. The WSUS server is running on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1-based computer. The Windows Update log may indicate that the client computer's connection to the WSUS server fails with a "0x8024400a" error code.

CAUSE

Sometimes, IIS incorrectly sends the "HTTP 100 Continue" response after IIS has sent the “HTTP 200 OK” response.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

I searched for a long time and very thoroughly and came across many suggested solutions all of which didnt work for me.. I found only one particular helpful post which I regretedly cant remember the link to.

The solution to this particular problem is as follows :

Start in "Safe Mode"

Search for the following files
wuapi.dll
wuauclt1.exe
wuauclt.exe
wuaucpl.cpl
wuaueng1.dll
wuaueng.dll
wuauserv.dll
wucltui.dll
wupdmgr.exe
wups2.dll
wups.dll
wuweb.dll

Rename all these files as ".old"

Reboot in Normal Mode and Bobs your uncle.
