RE: Windows update problem in Vista

I have the same problem but with the error code of 80070426 which translates
to "service not started" which service isn't stated, nice.

RE: Windows update problem in Vista

Something further to this:

The last date an update took place succesfully was June the 18th
The patches which updated at this time were the following:

Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.18.2637.4)
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - June 2007 (KB890830)
Update for Office 2007 (KB934391)

On attempting to remove the update for Windows Malicious software removal
tool I get a failure to say that it does not exist. I suspect this is the
patch that might have caused the update problem. Is there a manual way to
remove this?

Thanks for your help

AIUI there is nothing to "uninstall." E.g. it's just a procedure to scan and
target a few particular instances of malware. If some are found they may be
removed. What would an "uninstall" do? Reverse the removals?

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/890830/

BTW did you check the mrt.log? If you find that something was removed
unsuccessfully that could make an explanation for your symptoms which
would involve that procedure.

Did you ever get an answer as to how you can fix this? I read the thread
and it doesn't look like there is any suggestions. I get he same message and
I don't know what to do about it.

Did anybody find a solution?

Re: Windows Update

What same problem?

You started a new thread without reply to the original, so what are you
talking about?

The subject line now reflects the problem, which I also have.

When I start Vista I get a message that: "Windows can't check for updates

Clicking on the "More information" balloon reveals gives me the chance to
"Check for Updates" - the green progress bar moves for a while but nothing
changes that I can see - no confirmation message or other error message. The
window also says:

Most Recent Check for Updates: 2/20/2008
Updates were installed: 3/13/2008

There's a button to "View Update History". Clicking this gives me more
confusing information, because a long list of updates shows up, mostly
"Definition Update for Windows Defender", and the status is listed as
"Successful" with an installed date (most recent is 4/12/2008). But if I
click on "Installed Updates", I get an empty explorer window that says "No
updates are installed on this computer"!

Windows Update has been set to "automatically download files, and notify me
when updates are ready to install". I've changed it to the "recommended"
setting to automatically download and install, at a time when I know the
computer is on.

So far, I've found lots of forum messages regarding this same error message,
but no remedies (including on any microsoft fora...).

Did you ever get solution to your code 80080005 error problem???

RE: Windows update problem in Vista

I am trying reeeeaally hard to hang with my PC but problems like this are
starting to drive me crazy.

I have the same problem with error code 80080005. Before this code shows
up, I get "Windows Update has stopped working" with the following problem
signature. "Check online for solution" doesn't work. My automatic updating
keeps turning itself off.

Are there any Vista experts out there that could lend a hand? Thanks in
advance.

Did you ever fix your problem with windows update! I cant believe this has
been going on for so long. I only just found out I cant update and half my
services dont work. Dell were quite happy to take my money in October 2008
when I purchased my laptop vista ultimate which cost a fortune. They must
have known about this.
I dont know what to do and am dispairing over the whole thing { what a joke
} except im not laughing. I wish I had never bothered with the poxy thing?
should have bought a mac.

Think your Registry needs "cleaning" or "repairing"? Read and draw your own conclusions.

I just bought this computer about a 4 days ago and I'm getting the same
problem. I'm getting the error 80070426. I had it working for about an hour
doing a registry cleaner but then failed again an hour later. If anyone has a
solution please post it.

Unfortunately I already thought of that and tried that. Apparently I'm stuck
with this problem til service pack 2 possibly.

To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.

Re: Windows update problem in Vista

I have attempted that and everything else in the book. I called gateway and
microsoft and they both gave me the same response. I have to re-factory
install vista once again. This will be my 5th, and get all my windows
updates before re-installing any of my current software that I have
installed. Apparently is a known windows issue and nothing else I can do.
If anyone has found the way around it plz post a reply.

Re: Windows update problem in Vista

So no solution to the 8008005 problem that has been going on for years? Here
is what people write as solutions and frankly I'm tired of it.. "You must
have a virus" *sigh* This is quite obviously a windows bug not a dang virus.
"re-register dlls" well, tried that and it only creates more error messages
(80070005) etc... I understand that some of the solutions put forth have
helped a couple people but not everyone. I have been searching for a solution
to this problem for a long time and have concluded that there is no solution
and it's not even being worked on by microsoft. It's not good business to
have a malfunctioning piece of software and not even try to fix it. Come on
microsoft, get with it. I've invested a lot of money in you for years and
would like a functioning piece of software.

Despite your observations and opinion, time has proven that a hijackware
infestation is usually (but not always) the cause of these 8008005 errors.

Sorry if my post came off as snotty, I'm just really tired of this problem.
If a solution is not found then I will have trojan and hijack problems. This
is my work comp and really don't need problems with it. Just want a solution
that works.
