    Error code 0x80070005 registering the SSL security library - Vista

    I recently had some problems signing into my Windows Live ID account. It kept
    saying that my user name or password was wrong and it finally locked me out
    so that I couldn't change my password or do anything with my account. I was
    sent a reset password email from tech support and was finally able to get in.
    It still doesn't recognize my password at times though and I have to reset it
    again.
    In trying to troubleshoot my problem one of the things I came across and I
    tried was reregistering the SSL security libraries.

    %windir%\system32\REGSVR32 softpub.dll
    %windir%\system32\REGSVR32 wintrust.dll
    %windir%\system32\REGSVR32 initpki.dll

    The 1st one works, but the next one does not. I get - The module
    "wintrust.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error
    code 0x80070005.
    I tried a search for the error code at that database and nothing came up.
    The 3rd one does not work either. I get - The module "initpki.dll" failed to
    load.

    The tech support that resolved my password issue for my Windows Live ID
    suggested contacting the Microsoft Support Team for the reregistering the SSL
    security libraries. They basically told me to take a flying leap and look for
    the answer myself. They obviously didn't read my complaint because I stated
    that I already had looked for help on my own.

    I have found many issues to do with error code 0x80070005, but none like
    mine. Most are to do with XP SP2, failed update installations, etc. I
    checked and I haven't had any failed Windows update installations and my most
    recent updates were installed yesterday. I have tried using WGADiag2.exe
    file, didn't help. I have seen instructions for modifying the registry, but
    they are all for XP and I have Vista, so I don't want to go ahead and try
    that. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is the exact same problem that I am having and I am stuck in the middle
    of Tanzania without any help. If anyone finds an answer to this, I would
    love to hear it.

    I would suspect another of the host of Permissions errors in Vista. One
    thing I have been able to do to effect this seemingly net wide problem is to
    delete the Live cookies. (Anyone trying this must sign out of everything
    first)
    If I were you, I would start Safe Mode, to try registering the wintrust.dll.
