Offtopic: Windows Vista Update failed with error 80070005

Posted on May 24, 2008. Filed under: Operating System, Windows | Tags: , , |

I have a Vista Home Premium edition and for no reason the windows update failed with error 80070005 one day. There was no new applications installed and i dont remember changing any settings and the worst part is i dont get to find a solution on the vendor website.

I tried all sort of options provided in this microsoft forum link but nothing worked.

Thanks to Aaron Stebner for the wonderful post. (http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx) which just worked like a charm. I just followed the steps mentioned on this blog, and voila the error vanished.

cheers,

Just stumbled upon this article and it solved my “Window’s can’t Check for updates” error that was spitting up a 80070005 error code. I have been trying to fix it for about 4 months now, so thanks! This was a real gem of a find for me!
