  2. How about posting more information, such as, when does the error occur ?
    Is the system able to update successfully ?

    0x800705b4 is a time-out issue

    IF the definition files can not be downloaded/installed, try to manually
    download them from here:

    Look under ' Latest Definition Updates ' on the top right of the page
    and select the appropriate defs for the Version of Vista that is installed.
    Download and SAVE the defs, do NOT run it.
    Once the D/L is complete, close all open browsers and programs
    Now install the defs.
