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?
