    I've gotten the computer in like February and just last week, i get the
    notification saying windows could not search for updates, so I clicked check
    for updates and i got the same message with error(s) found code 80070005, I
    tried some of the suggestions below and none of them worked.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Not much for the old "access denied" code - but -

    Suggestion from MS -

    Install/reinstall Windows Update Client

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe


    The above URL is for 64-bit version or the 32-bit version

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

    Please see if installing the 3.0 client resolves the problem.

    No guarantees.

  6. I have the exact same problem with Vista Ultimate. Windows Update returns an
    80070005 error. Clicking on the Get Help link returns 23 possible fixes which
    all are different and haven't done anything except delete my Windows Update
    History. I feel like I'm sliding down a slippery slope here. This all started
    10/09/2007. I am nothing going down the re-install road for a while. As I
    have a 1TB system and need to off load a lot of data before doing a
    scratch/install of Vista. We shouldn't have to re-install the operating
    system as a solution.

  7. No guarantees but see if installing/reinstalling the latest WU Client helps.

    x86-based systems
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/W...one/7.0.6000.381/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe
    or

  8. That didn't work. During install I get the following error: "Windows Update
    Agent Installer encountered unrecoverable error".

    heard nothing back from Microsoft as of yet.

  11. They're probably swamped.
    Please post back any response that you get that actually works to assist others who have
    the same problem.

    Just a thought, one of the most common causes of this error code (access denied) 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.

  12. Windows Update Error Code: 80070005 & 80070422 - .NetFramework 3.5 - Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas)

    So approx a months ago ( 9/20 ) I noticed that my system bogged down alot near midnight. I checked task manager and found a service Windows Module Installer was constantly running around this time period. One night I had disabled the service and forgotten to turn it back on.

    I just ran into this issue myself with error '80070422'. The issue is that the Wwindows Update is dependant on this service running (obvious reasons).

    Perhaps you have done the same. Go to service management console (Start -> Run -> Services.msc) and verify that the 'Windows Modules Installer' is enabled.

    Check for updates and hopefully this will resolve it for you as it did for me. This also resolved an issue with installing the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas) with the following error messages.

    I am have also been getting this problem since 9th October 2007. I have
    contatced both Microsoft and Symantec (I am running Internet Security 2008).
    Both of the suggested fixes are below. As yet they have not worked for me -
    does anyone know the answer to the following questions please (both MS and
    Symantec have not replied to my further questions):

    1. The name and location of the Executable file name for Windows Update
    manager in Vista? Symantec suggested wupdmgr.exe, but a full search of my
    laptop has not loacated this file.

    2. When I try to rename c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution I do not have
    permission on my user account, even tho it has administrator access. I
    enabled the administrator account on my laptop, and this doesn't have
    permission either. Does anyone know how I can give either account the
    required acccess?

    Microsoft's Solution:
    Rename Software Distribution folder:

    1. Click on 'Start', choose 'Run', type in CMD and click on 'OK'.

    2. Type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press 'Enter'. (Leave this window open for
    later use)

    3. Open 'My Computer'.

    4. Find the folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.

    5. Right mouse click on SoftwareDistribution and choose 'Rename', call the
    folder "SDold"

    6. Return to the black Window that opened in step 1 type NET START WUAUSERV
    and click 'Enter'.

    7. Close all the windows.

    Once we have performed the above steps, please access the Windows Update
    site and see, if the issue is resolved.

    Symantec's Solution

    please note that this issue could be caused if Norton Internet Security is
    blocking Internet connection for the Windows Update Manager. I suggest that
    you please set permissions for the Windows Update Manager to access the
    internet to resolve this issue. Please follow the steps provided below to
    permit Windows Update Manager for internet access:

    1. Open Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2008.
    2. Click on settings.
    3. Click on Personal firewall
    4. Click on Configure
    5. Click on Program control in the left pane of the Internet Security and
    Firewall Options Window
    6. Browse through the folder "C:\Windows\System32\" (Default path).
    7. Click on the application "wupdmgr.exe".
    8. Select OK.
    9. Once you finish adding wupdmgr.exe, I suggest that you set its Access
    status as "Allow".

    NOTE: If you are unable to find the executable file (wupdmgr.exe), then
    please contact Microsoft Technical Support department for further assistance
    in getting the actual "Name" and "Location" of the Executable file name for
    Windows Update manager.

    An update for anyone else experiencing this problem. Microsoft's suggested
    fix worked for me and Windows Update is now running fine.

    I needed to start in safe mode in order to rename the SoftwareDistribution
    folder:

    Microsoft's Solution:
    Rename Software Distribution folder:

    1. Click on 'Start', choose 'Run', type in CMD and click on 'OK'.

    2. Type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press 'Enter'. (Leave this window open for
    later use)

    3. Open 'My Computer'.

    4. Find the folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.

    5. Right mouse click on SoftwareDistribution and choose 'Rename', call the
    folder "SDold"

    6. Return to the black Window that opened in step 1 type NET START WUAUSERV
    and click 'Enter'.

    7. Close all the windows

    8. Run Windows Update.

    I,as well as many, many others I'm sure are having these same error
    messages. I followed the above reply's instructions and was still
    unsuccessful. First, in safe mode, the command NET STOP WUAUSERV when
    entered told me that it could not be performed in safe mode. I have
    tried in both boot sequences and in normal I now recieve a "System
    Error 5" in the command prompt... I'm not quite sure, but I'm pretty
    close to losing my mind over trying to figure out a solution... More
    posts appreciated

    I had the same problem. I went back to see what the last upgrades were when
    it still worked and de-installed one at a time.
    I believe the one that fixed the problem was the security upgrade KB941644
    since it is back on the list of suggested upgrades once the poll for upgrades
    is now working.

    I will NOT re-install this upgrade.
