When I want to use the update function of Windows Vista Home Premium I get the error code 80004002.
Can some one please assist because uptill now I haven't found a solution for this problem.
Re: Update error 80004002
It isn't one of the "common" Windows Update errors (see
http://support.microsoft.com/ph/6527/). But clearly, something isn't working
0x80040002 is a standard COM error meaning E_NOINTERFACE; that is, some COM
DLL on your system is not correctly registered, hence the Windows Update
process cannot find the Interfaces this DLL exports. Exactly which DLL is
hard to say, from here. But once you find it, it should be easy to
re-register - you go to a Command Prompt as Administrator and run the
where you replace "foo.dll" with the name of the specific DLL in question.
Then run Windows Update again, and it should work okay.
To get more details about the error, look in the file
C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log. This is a plain text file which you can open
in Notepad. If you seach for "8004002" or "E_NOINTERFACE" you should find
the error in the log, along with more details about the files involved. If
it isn't obvious from the log what you need to do, cut-n-paste the relevant
section of WindowsUpdate.log into a message to the newsgroup. For issues
around Windows update, you might be better off asking in
microsoft.public.windowsupdate - that group is 100% focussed on Windows

Re-register the Windows Update DLL with the commands below:

2. Type the following commands. Press 'ENTER' after each command:
Try Updating Windows.
