    Unable to install updates ERROR 0x80004002

    Hi
    I'm facing the same problem that many other people have mentioned here : I
    have 84 updates downloaded and WU is unable to install them. I've tried the
    following :

    Click Start, select run and type the following (pressing okay after each
    one):-
    net.exe stop wuauserv
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 MSXML3.dll
    net.exe start wuauserv

    I've run CCleaner many times, but still it does not work
    Can somebody please help me ?
    Thanks !

    Francois ... you did everything except this:

    Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from
    Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a
    Windows XP installation
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

    Register wups2.dll from a Command Prompt, as described in Method 1 on
    the above page and that should get the updates installed.
    If not, go to Method 2.

    This error is most likely caused by one of the following conditions:

    1. The Windows Update Temporary folder is corrupted.
    2. Windows Update Agent 3.0 is not installed properly.

    We can perform the following steps to troubleshoot this issue. After trying
    each suggestion, please go to the Windows Update site to check the result.
    Thanks for your cooperation.

    NOTE: Some third party programs can also affect the Windows Update service.
    If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet
    or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet
    connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I
    recommend we temporarily disable or shut them down and then try accessing the
    Windows Update site later. Please be sure to enable them again after
    completing the update process.

    Suggestion 1: Clean up Windows Update temporary folder
    ===========================================
    1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the open window.

    Net stop WuAuServ

    2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
    3. In the open folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.
    4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the open window.

    Net start WuAuServ

    Suggestion 2: Reinstall Windows Update Agent 3.0
    ======================================
    1. Visit the following link and download Windows Update Agent 3.0 to the C:\
    (Choose Save, click My Computer on left panel, Click C:\, Click Open and
    Click Save)

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/Wi...gent30-x86.exe

    2. Click Start, Click Run and copy the following command to the panel:

    C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    Note: There is a space between "C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" and
    "/wuforce".

    Best Regards,

    Calven
