I've actually tried the fix it solution, when it prompts me to restart I get a BSOD.. and I tried looking for a restore point but there's none, the last restore point is the 22nd of May and that's still when I had this problem.

Hi, I tried the fix it program in safe mode and it didn't work. After a while, I decided to do a clean install, as I was sick of getting different BSOD's in between fixing my windows updates, and now I have a new error 80080005 in my clean install of windows? Oh and I succesfully installed MSE on my clean install btw.

Although some of the steps in this article include that of jenae's, it gives others to try Code 80080005 Error on windows update with windows 7 home premimum - Microsoft Community

There's also this auto troubleshooter you could try Fix Windows Update Error messages and other Windows Update issues but if the error code relates to specific updates - which you will be able to confirm in Update History showing as failed, then a Google of the KB number should give you a MS direct download link.

If it's a complete failure of all the updates after trying the above MS steps, then try downloading just a few at a time from the notification.

Can you open the cmd prompt as an administrator and enter this cmd - sfc /scannow and let us know what it reports on completion - takes 20-30mins.

If you've never used the cmd prompt before, go Start - type cmd.exe then right click on the word cmd and select Run as administrator - click on Yes and that will give you the cmd window where you type sfc /scannow at the cmd prompt then press Enter.

Note the space before the forward slash.

Alternatively, you could go into the BIOS to change the Boot Order to read from the diskplayer first - insert your install disk - Save and Exit (usually F10) - on reboot Press any key to boot from CD/DVD when prompted and select the Repair option.

Select Safe Mode with Cmd Prompt and at the X:\ prompt enter this cmd (assuming your OS is in the C: drive) - there is a space before each of the forward slashes.

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=C:\ /offwindir=C:\Windows

sfc/scannow gives me error windows resource protection could not start the repair service, the repair disk method gives me an error with compatibility of the version of windows and the last sfc scan method gives me "The arguments passed to sfc are invalid. The offline windows directory specified points to the online system".

From your last post, it sounds as if you ran sfc with three methods or was the bit about compatibility an extension of the "could not start" message ?

For the first error "could not start" message - from Start type services.msc then press Enter

Scroll down to Windows Module - it should be showing as Manual.

Double click on its name and using the dropdown change this to Automatic then click the Start button - OK - then use the File dropdown and select Exit - try the Windows Updates again.

When you used the install disk, did you go into the BIOS and change the Boot Order to read from CD/DVD ROM before the HDD by moving it up to the first device - put the disk in then select Save and Exit ?

The arguments passed to sfc are invalid error is normally associated with the machine not booting from the install disk.

Just to check that your version of Win7 is valid - go Start - right click on Computer then select Properties

Scroll down to Windows Activation and it should say Windows is activated and under that should have your OEM product key if it is a legal copy.

Hi, sfc should help here, to run it offline you need to be using the RE (repair your computer) in seven this is built in, open safe mode advanced and select "repair your computer" it (unlike vista) is not necessary to boot from the system OS. You select command prompt and at the x sources prompt, type:-

sfc/scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows (press enter)

If this still returns an error (unable to run) then still at the x sources prompt type:-

dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions (press enter), actually it is probably a good idea to run this regardless it may well fix all your issues. Restart computer to boot normally.

Hi, did you try the suggestions in post #17? Windows module installer is trusted installer, it should be left as default which is manual please change back to this. The error 1067 is "the process terminated unexpectantly" Please let us know what happens after running the dism cmd.
