Re: error 80004002

Try this - show hidden files, folders, and system files:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...l62.html#vista

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to

WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution
Delete ALL subfolders of SoftwareDistribution
[NOTE: this will also delete the update history shown on the
Windows/Microsoft Update sites]
Close Windows Explorer.

Download the latest version of the Windows Update Agent and save it:

For x86 or 32 bit
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

For x64 or 64 bit
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe

When the download is complete close the browser and any other open programs
Now install the WUA
Revisit Windows Update to see if the system can successfully update

RE: error 80004002

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
'OK'.

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.

RE: error 80004002

This works perfect. Thank you very much. But, on Vista Ultimate teh commands:
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll, wucltui.dll, and wuweb.dll give errors. If anybody
else tries this method, don't worry about the errors. It still works.

Re: error 80004002

Unfortunately both did not work for me, with the first method I am unable to delete "data store" and "logs" folders and also cannot download the new x64 link successfully.

In method 2, I am I get an error message with regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll and regsvr32 wucltui.dll both "Failed to Load" the others were a success.
