Problems running Software Update; scan failed with error = 0x80244023

All other computers returned the Software Update compliance information back to the Site Server except a few client. Error found in the WindowsUpdate.log and WUAHandler.log is 0x80244023. Running the WSUS Client Diagnostic Tool reveals a “VerifyWUServerURL() failed with hr=0x801901f8” error. Problem that was found was that WinHttpSettings is was pointing to an unknown IP address. The goal is to clear and make sure there is no proxy setting in Winhttpsettings. To do this browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEsoftwaremicrosoftwindowsCurrentVersioninternet settingsconnections in the registry and rename the WINHTTPSETTINGS to WINHTTPSETTINGSx (for example). Try to run the Software Update Scan Cycle again reveals that the scan ran perfectly!

Other error codes that may indicate the same problem is also hr=0x80190190 and 0x80244016 in the WUAHandler.log
