HELP with error 80080005 windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I have been trying to read these forums hoping to come up with a solution to my problem.

    I have tried every solution that everyone on the web has said to try on these various threads and nothing has worked. I has become extremely frustrating that there is no one who is willing to try to help me solve my problem. 

    I hope someone will be willing to help me out.

    Info:

    I am running windows 7 64 bit

    I have a hp pavilion dv7t 7000 

    I have been getting this update for a little over 2 weeks
