Error numbers don't mean a whole lot without the error message text.

Both of the errors are that they are unable to update due to the error
listed above. Error 80244019 is unable to update Microsoft secruit
updates. Error 0x80244019.is unable to update Microsoft Defende
updates

Well, the Windows Update center gives you more information as to the
cause of the failure. So what does it say about the two failures when
you View List of Updates, right-click the update line to to view the
error.

If you can't access Hotmail, update Vista, nor Defender, than there's a
communication issue occurring.

0x80244019 WU_E_PT_HTTP_STATUS_NOT_FOUND
HTTP 404 - the server cannot find the requested URI (Uniform Resource
Identifier).

Which firewall is being used ?
What is the installed security software [antivirus, security suite,
antispyware, etc] ?

You could attempt to install the latest Version of the Windows Update
Agent [WUA] with the installed antivirus/3rd party firewall temporarily
disabled BUT, if the communication issue is related to the above, the
issue will reoccur.

AU Check (v78)
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Go to the above page, download, and *save* au_check_v78_codeplex.exe .
Once the download completes, close all open browsers and programs.

*** Temporarily disable the installed AV and any 3rd party firewall.
Consult the UserGuide or Help files of the above software or, read this:

How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware
Programs
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

ENABLE the native Vista firewall as the system will need to be online in
order to download the WUA ***

*RIGHT* click au_check_v78_codeplex.exe and choose 'Run as
administrator'. Follow the prompts.
Allow some time for the required updating software to install.
Reboot afterwards even if not prompted to.

Reenable the security software and *disable* the native Vista firewall
IF another is being used.

See if the system can update now.

Nice work, Tinamarie2401. Would you please post the model number and
manufacturer of the laptop ?
Thanks.
