    Code 80004002 Windows Update - Vista Home Premium

    In Windows Update in Vista Home Premium, when I click on update now, it comes
    back with Error(s) found: Code 80004002.
    How do I solve this?
    I tried using:
    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

    Only the first command executed correctly.

    That solution was for Windows XP, the only thing I can suggest for you is to reinstall the
    Windows update client -

    A new version of the Windows Update Agent is available

    If that fails, you'll need to contact MS -
    Start a free Windows Update support incident request:

    Unfortunately, the new update agent seems to install correctly, but Windows
    Update still returns the same Code even after a reboot.

    I have written to MS support as recommended.

    Please post back with MS's workable response so others may benefit.

    If English is not your native language then please use this page to
    translate the below article

    Then come back and post in some form of English that can be understood
    so that someone *may* assist you.

    If English is your native language, then please turn off the computer
    and toss it out the window.

    When you're looking for a reason to buy a new
    HD LCD monitor, just <ping> me.

    Thanks Mow! I was looking for a reason to buy a new keyboard. Spitting a
    mouthful of coffee on it also helped make my decision.

    Thanks, but my Samsung is protected by my patented liquid-proof monitor
