windows automatic updates is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • My automatic updates option is missing from windows security after I noticed it was not turned on.  I tried to copy and paste the following command at the command prompt line as I read in other threads that it has resolved similar problems for others:

    REGSVR32 %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

    Another window popped up that said:

    DllRegisterSwerver in C:\Windows\System32\WUAUENG.DLL failed.

    Error code 0x80070005.

    Now what? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks :)

  • Did you right click the icon for starting the command prompt and choose Run
    As Administrator?

  • You know, I did not have the administrator option, I assumed that was the same as "owner" which is what showed.  It is our home computer.

  • Did it work when choosing Run As Owner?

  • Well, I got to the command prompt fine, but when I pasted "REGSVR32 %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL", that's when the error occurred.
