    It isn't one of the "common" Windows Update errors (see 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

    C:\>regsvr32 foo.DLL

    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
    Update problems.

    Try this it worked for me

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

    1. Click on 'Start', choose 'Run'. In the open box, type cmd, and then click

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

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    Try Updating Windows.
