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

Suggestion from MS -

Install/reinstall Windows Update Client

http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe


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

http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

Please see if installing the 3.0 client resolves the problem.

No guarantees.

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.

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

x86-based systems
http://download.windowsupdate.com/Wi...gent30-x86.exe
or

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

Thanks for the Windows Support Link. I sent a request on Oct 13 but have
heard nothing back from Microsoft as of yet.
