Ok, this can be fixed by lowering the IE security [Tools > Internet Options >
Security] to the least possible level. In order for this updates to be
installed, Windows/IE needs permissions to write to the Windows Registry, but
these security setting don't let to do so. Good luck

Wrong !!! IE's settings have absolutely *nothing* to do with updates'
writing to the registry.
Misconfigured firewall settings and local security policies set in the
OS can block updates writing to the registry but the leading cause of
the Access Denied permissions issue (error 0x80070005) is 3rd party
security software.
The second leading cause is the presence of malware that is attempting
to keep the system from installing security updates.

Lowering security settings in IE should only be done when a *specific*
issue is identified otherwise the system is at risk from "less
benevolent" software ... better known as malware.

Hi MowGreen,

Thanks for your input.

What I posted was purely based on what I experienced. I lowered the settings
& got the issue sorted. And changing the IE settings back to the default ones
isnt a big thing
