    I am rather frustrated as I consider myself pretty good with win7 but this one has been throwing me for quite a loop.

    When I attempt to update windows I get:

    Windows could not search for new updates

    An error occurred while checking for
    new updates for your computer.

    Error(s) found:

    Code 80070005 Windows update encountered an unknown error.

    ------------------------------------


    I have attempted a few fixes :

    Nope. Downloaded the fix and ran it (with aggressive option checked.) and problem still persists.
