  1. Windows Update fails - error 0x80080005


    WinVer says I am running Windows 10 Home Version 1903 OS Build 18362.418 which dates from the end of July 2019.

    In November I installed the major Windows update, and thought it had installed correctly. It obviously didn't install at all.

    Now I can't update Windows, and am quoted error number 0x80080005.

    I have tried several recommended fixes, none of which have made any difference.


    Who can suggest what I might do now, please?


    Thanks in advance for serious assistance.

    :)

    Sorry? Have you got the correct Tweaking .com's repair tool? Or followed the steps to the end where you actually do the numbered repairs?

    - If you had followed all the steps I'd have expected it to take a bit longer.

    It guides you through stages of preparation, then you perform the repairs in Safe Mode.

    then

    Of course, you can just go to Safe Mode, launch the program, and directly run the repairs, missing the preparation... not the best of ideas. It's designed to give you ways of going back if something goes wrong by creating a restore point, registry backup... then doing the repairs.

    Windows Update Showing error (0x80080005) randomly

    Hi, this thread:
    Fresh Windows 10 Activation/Update Issue Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    suggests the error number may occur where one of the OTHER drives has a problem.

    Your specs don't say whether you have other drives installed.

    Anyway, worth using Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) - the best text summary of such programs I've seen- to check your disks. Failing that check SMART params and do a surface scan with something else.
