Windows Update Error Code: 80080005
hello vistaheads!
this my first time posting.
my problem is that i am no longer able to get windows update. see error code above. I have a Dell XPS 410 and using Vista Home Premium (32 bit). i first noticed this several days ago.
i have tried disabling antispyware/antiviral programs and did some registry "cleaning", all to no avail. today, i called MS and they referred me to Dell. their response was quick: backup and re-install. interestingly they seem to be pointing the finger at each other as to the cause. nobody seems to want to take responsibility and provide "real" support. so, here i am.
any thoughts anyone?

Hello! I see no expert replies to your problem! Have you solved it? I searched the web but could not see any conclusive solution, although the same problem is faced by many. Please give a feed back.

Thanx

I have not received any replies. I still have the same problem.
It amazes me that Microsoft has not found a fix for this problem.
What's worse is that there is not even an acknowledgment of the problem!

Re: Windows Update Error Code: 80080005
Hello! Since there is no expert reply and since you are still stuck with the same problem, may I suggest something? I am no computer expert, but what I suggest is basic and harmless and probably you would have already tried it!

In the IE browser, disable all add-ons and set the security to default. Then Start->Run -> msconfig.exe and from the 'services' disable all NON-Microsoft applications. Restart. Pray to god and start windows update from IE browser/Start menu.

Best of luck! Please get back with the outcome. (I was worried the first time when I did not see even your response for quite some time!)

-Yours

Re: Windows Update Error Code: 80080005
that was a courtesy "thank you!"
your suggestion did not work.
i hope that someone out there is reading this thread and provide some solutions. Microsoft surely isn't. i've never known a company to be so unresponsive to such a difficult issue that is obviously affected a lot of MS-Vista users. incredible.
:-(
