Error Code: 0x80070005
Ok, so ignore my prior post from today... I kind of figured out why a month's
worth of updates weren't automatically installing into my computer but I
don't know how to solve this problem which is "Error Code: 0x80070005" - for
EVERY update not installed, this was supposedly the problem. I tried manually
installing them but got the same error code.

I tried the recommended resolutions for this error ("REGEDIT") even though
the problem description wasn't exactly the problem I was having - it was just
the only thing I could find related to the error code. Anyway, the resolution
didn't work so any help?!

Then your symptom is essentially independent of WU,
so you may get better assistance from someone who has
actually installed whatever it is that you are trying to install,
e.g. from someone in a newsgroup which specializes in that
update's product.

Usually 0x80070005 is just a symptom of a permissions problem
of some kind. You need to use the install log or perhaps the Event log
to refine that symptom description, so you can know *which* resource
needs to have its permissions changed.

An alternative to using those diagnostics would be to run ProcMon
and rerun the install, then look for messages such as "access denied"
in the ProcMon trace.


Good luck
