Q: Unable to install updates from Windows, getting error: 80010108

Orginal title: Whenever I try to install any update, it displays the error-80010108? Even the Windows update troubleshooter is not able to fix the problem?

My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.




1.       Which update are you trying to install?

2.       Have you made any changes to the computer prior to this issue?

3.       What is the exact error code or error message?


I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if it helps.

Method 1:

Run the fixit from the following Microsoft Fixit article and check if it helps.

Sorry this didn't help.





The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.

Is the most recent Version of the Windows Update Agent (WUA) installed ?

The error may indicate an issue with the ActiveX component of the WUA, either it's an older Version that no longer works with the update servers or security software is interfering with it.

See the " How to obtain the latest Windows Update Agent " section in this MS KB: <>

In the WindowsUpdate.log ( How to read the Windowsupdate.log file

<> )

you'll see an entry like this entry *if* the latest Version of the WUA is installed:

2010-02-24 09:51:38:354 904 d80 Agent * WU client version 7.4.7600.226

UTC/GMT is 16:52 on Wednesday, November 30, 2011
