    One of the most common causes of this error code is the Anti Virus and Anti Spyware
    software programs running on the computer.
    You can try turning them off and then try the updates again. Keep the firewall on though.

    Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3) when posting to
    this newsgroup.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed?

    Can you tell us which update(s) you're trying to install?

    Julie, FYI, it would have been better to start your own thread and provide
    all the relevant information so we can assist if appropriate/possible.

    Error Code: 0x80070005

    Ok, so ignore my prior post from today... I kind of figured out why a month's
    worth of updates weren't automatically installing into my computer but I
    don't know how to solve this problem which is "Error Code: 0x80070005" - for
    EVERY update not installed, this was supposedly the problem. I tried manually
    installing them but got the same error code.

    I tried the recommended resolutions for this error ("REGEDIT") even though
    the problem description wasn't exactly the problem I was having - it was just
    the only thing I could find related to the error code. Anyway, the resolution
    didn't work so any help?!

    Then your symptom is essentially independent of WU,
    so you may get better assistance from someone who has
    actually installed whatever it is that you are trying to install,
    e.g. from someone in a newsgroup which specializes in that
    update's product.

    Usually 0x80070005 is just a symptom of a permissions problem
    of some kind. You need to use the install log or perhaps the Event log
    to refine that symptom description, so you can know *which* resource
    needs to have its permissions changed.

    An alternative to using those diagnostics would be to run ProcMon
    and rerun the install, then look for messages such as "access denied"
    in the ProcMon trace.
