    Until recently, my Windows has been automatically updating by itself and has had no problems. Now it says that, "Windows can't check for updates" and it gives me ERROR CODE: 80070005

    I messed around with my MSConfig, but I'm not sure if that's what has caused it, because I checked any program with relevance to updating Windows. Sorry I cannot provide any more info.

    Hi hy0n,

    Are you logged in with Administrator privileges?
    Can you download update manually?
