    Everytime I try to run Windows Update, the system pauses for about one minute
    and then says Error Code 80080005. I have not been able to install any
    updates. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. This is a brand new Dell
    Dimension C521. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Also see: -
    You may receive an error message that contains the "0x8DDD0018" code or the "0x80246008"
    code when you try to download updates from the Microsoft Windows Update Web site or from
    the Microsoft Update Web site
    http://support.microsoft.com:80/kb/910337/en-us
    scroll to: Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer service on the
    local computer. For more information, review the system event log. If this is a
    non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor and refer to service-specific error
    code -2147467243. (0x80080005)

    Also This can be a temporary error and so retrying a couple of times may help
