  • Why can't you just answer the question, or give guidance as to where to find appropriate support information??

     

    I have the same error with the Windows Update as described above with the same exact error code. In following the built in advise to search the microsoft website for the string "error code 80080005" this is the FIRST hit to come up. If there's a better place to go for information, just list the damn thing!!

     

    Frustrated!! Just tell me how to solve the damn problem!!!
