Critical Update connection

Posted: 12-04-2008, 05:14 PM
Yesterday when I signed on with my Vista and went to Critical Updates, I saw
there was an update:
Windows update agent 7.2.6001.788
I clicked OK for the download. When the download finished, I was immediately
transferred out of Critical Update page and back to my Google page. I looked
in the Update History and saw the the Windows Update Agent was successfully
installed.
Today when I turned on the Vista, I saw that it was going through steps 1-3
(saying please do not turn off computer). When the steps 1-3 finished, the
computer screen came on.
I went again to Critical Update, but it would not go through. I kept getting
this message:

windows could not search for new updates
error(s) found code 80244022
Windows update encountered an unknown error

What is going on?

With the error message present, attempt to connect to windows update again.
It will probably be successful. Then close the error message.

You shouldn't get it again.

Thank you.
Quite confusing to me as I am not too familiar with all this "stuff."
