  • Windows Update for Win7 broken, throwing error 80248015

    Short answer: It’s Microsoft’s fault. They let the ExpiryDate pass without updating it. You can tweak your machine (e.g., set the date back) but for now, Win7 users just get to wait until Microsoft acknowledges and fixes the bug. In the interim, half of all Windows users around the world are unable to run Windows Update.

    Yesterday’s comments are here. I tried to merge them into this post, but the AskWoody site isn’t working right. Sigh.
