    Cannot update anything, 80080005

    I've been trying to get Automatic Windows Updates to work for quite some time now, and I've got the error code 80080005 every time. I'm currently trying to manually update to vista service pack 2 and am getting the same error code.

    I've also been trying to manually update other windows components, like .NET, and it fails on me everytime. I read in one troubleshooting thread that windows update needs to be active for some of these to work. Nothing I have done works, and I can't seem to find any threads about this. The only things I ever find in a search is people confused by the problem with no surefire way to fix it. Anyone familiar with this?

    I did the scan, 1 registry key infected and removed.
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChanges (Hijack.DisplayProperties) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully."

    I tried to run the SFC commands, as I have tried to do before (found that post before one time) and I cannot run it: "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair services." No error code, and it does it everytime on every scan or verify command.

    Thank you all for any help on this

    "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair services."

    There are as many "fix's" for this as there are for windows not updating, but i think if you can get this problem solved it will sort the other one.

    Here are a "few" links with possible solutions.

    Give it a try and please post your results. Thanks and good luck.

    OK. I tried what these said with no results. The Windows Modules Installer can't even start : "Error 126: The specified module could not be found." . I'm trying to search for other ways to get the SFC running correctly now.

    Anymore ideas? I'm going to try a safemode sfc....

    Here's a fun tidbit. SFC didn't run in safe mode (half didn't expect it to) but then I remembered I could run SFC from my windows disc if you boot cmd from CD. I fully expected that to work. No luck. It actually gave me the generic "this will take time" sort of message, then almost instantly I got the same error/ cannot be done message.

    Any other thoughts? I would LOVE to avoid formatting and reinstalling.

    You probaly did this, but did you run this from an elevated command prompt ?, if not try that. Re-formatting is a last resort, i still think if you can fix one the other will follow without too much kicking and screaming.
