This is a link to an article I found on the Microsoft websit by googling the
error code. The error code I got indicates that part of the update is
missing. The fix is explained on the web page above, but I haven't tried it
yet.

How does your problem relate to the original poster with error code
0x800704DD?

Have a look at:

You receive a "0x80070002" or "0x80070003" error code after you download an
update from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or from Windows Server
Update Services
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910336
When searching for available updates on the Update site, you see the
0x80070002 or 0x80070003 error
http://update.microsoft.com/windowsu...=en&IsMu=False

Error message when you try to download updates from the Microsoft Windows
Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site on a Windows XP-based
computer: "0x80070003"

Which error code? 0x800704DD or 0x80070003?

Not only have you hijacked another's thread, you have posted insufficient
information.

See responses to Jay & SHB
Pick your error code and operating system accordingly.

Re: my computer cannot get updates
Mari, your error code is 0x80070005 which is totally different from the
original posted and the hijackers.

For your error (access denied) :

First, make sure that your anti virus software isn't locking the registry
and preventing the installer from modifying the same.

denied" or "Service Pack installation did not complete"
