  • Hi rea2k,

    Windows update error 80070005 is known as "ACCESS DENIED".

    1. Please ensure you login as an administrator to install windows updates;

    2. Please run anti virus scan and command "sfc/scannow" to check if your computer is attacked by virus and check if there are corrupted system files;

    3. Try resetting windows update components on the client:


    Best Regards,
