    Recently I replaced Norton Internet Security with ZoneAlarm. Could it be
    the cause of the problem?
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool was rejected multiple times with
    the Error code: 0x80246001.
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB896424) finally succeeded after
    multiple failed attempts. Error code 0x80246008.
    What gives?

    Any help will be much appreciated,

  2. Temporarily disable ZA.

    Ensure the True Vector service is also stopped.

    Temporarily enable the built-in XP firewall.

    Then run WU.

    Peter, thanks a lot for the help. I will try it.
    On a side note. I disliked Norton, but at least my Win was always
    updated automatically.
