  2. Are you currently running Vista or Vista SP1?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
    anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
    (if any)?

  3. this is not a 3rd party issue with firewall or av etc, nor is it related to
    SP's it is to do with the update service not starting. I am diagnosing issue
    now and will update u shortly.

  4. You do realize that there is not likely a *single* solution for this issue.
    Over the years, there have been several solutions and several causes.

    For example - you are responding (for some unknown reason) to one of only
    few of these reported issues - and one that the conversation died on fairly
    quickly.

    Specifically:
    http://groups.google.com/group/micr...e_frm/thread/8600421a1474fb68/d925de030a028af

    A quick search reveals it is not alone:
    http://groups.google.com/groups/search?safe=off&q=windows+update+error+80080005

    Although it may be one of the newer (only *approaching* one year old, not
    quite there at the time of this posting by 6 or so days.)

    My suggestion...

    Download, install, run, update and perform a full scan (separately) with the
    following two applications (freeware versions are the ones to use for this):

    SuperAntiSpyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/

    MalwareBytes
    http://www.malwarebytes.com/

    After performing a full scan with one and then the other and removing
    whatever they both find completely, you may uninstall these products,
    if you wish.

    Then follow the instructions here:

    How do I reset Windows Update components?
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

    Then reboot and try your updates again.

    Come back and tell everyone what you found so that others might benefit when
    searching the Internet.
