    I keep getting a "fail" when trying to get the security update for Windows XP
    KB978542. Error message is 0x80070005. I have already changed permissions,
    but not resolved.
    Any solution out there?

  2. WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    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(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought

    I got the same problem on my Windows Home Server (german). No Anti-Virus or
    Firewall installed. All other updates are installed without problems: earlier
    updates and younger updates.
    Any idea?
