  2. Juan,

    Who's Eddie and what is his problem ? We have no idea whom and what you
    are referring to.

    0x80070005 is an ACCESS DENIED error, usually related to a Permissions
    issue in the registry.

    When you inform us of just what your's and Eddie's problem is, then
    perhaps someone can assist you.

  5. Get the update from HP's web site. SAVE it, close the browser and any
    other open programs.
    *RIGHT* click the downloaded driver and choose 'Run as administrator'
    Enter the password or click Continue.
    Did that get it installed ?

    Gents,

    I'm having the same error. I have no HP software. I am thee only operator
    on this computer (I have administrator's rights).

    Permissions registry. I have a store-bought copy of MS Office Premium. The
    only other programs installed are those that came with the computer (Sony
    Vaio).

    I'm getting the same 80070005 error as these guys while trying to do a
    windows update. I can't update my vista software at all, and this specific
    error code does not show up in help to offer any solutions.

    I IMed HP Tech Support. . . Here is the solution, it's relatively
    simple and more importantly, it works!

    1. Disable Windows Update
    a. Click on start
    b. Click on all programs
    c. Click on accessories
    d. Click on Run
    e. Type services.msc and press ok
    f. Right click on "Windows Update"
    g. Click on stop (Windows Update is now disabled)
    2. Rename Software Distribution folder
    a. Navigate to: C:/Windows/
    b. Find the folder named: “SoftwareDistribution”
    c. Rename that folder to something like “SoftwareDistribution.old”
    d. Create a new folder called “SoftwareDistribution”
    3. Enable Windows Update
    a. Click on start
    b. Click on all programs
    c. Click on accessories
    d. Click on Run
    e. Type services.msc and press ok
    f. Right click on windows update
    g. Click on start
    If you are unable to find Software Distribution Folder, follow these
    steps before #2 above.
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools
    3. Select Folder Options
    4. Select the View tab
    5. Select “Show hidden files and folders”
    6. Remove the selection from “Hide protected operating system files”
    7. Click OK

    Restart your PC and you should be good to go!

    THanks a ton. I didn't do all of above steps but with your inputs I found
    out that my software distribution folder was marked as hidden and readonly.
    when I removed both of above attributes It worked like charm.
    THanks much

  13. To avoid confusion, please begin a new thread about your specific problems.
    State your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP2)
    in your first post.

    Selina, don't hijack old threads,

    One of the most common causes of this error code is the Anti Virus and Anti
    Spyware software programs running on the computer.

    You can try turning them off and then try the updates again. Keep the
    firewall on though.


    Also see:

    Error message when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites to
    install updates: 0x80070005
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968003/

    0x80070005 - Permissions issue. You can reset registry and file ACLs to
    their Default state by following the directions here:

    If that doesn't assist, please start a new thread stating what update you're
    trying to install, details about your computer for example, what operating
    system etc.

    Could you please explain it more open? I'd tried the steps that "stossmann"
    suggested but nothing improved so far.

    I've followed, a number of times, the steps you provide and continue to
    receive the 80070005 error. I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium on an HP
    Pavilion m9250f quad core and the HP w2408h monitor.
