windos update error 80070496 - net start action starts service but still problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since a couple of weeks I have this problem - I have removed sw installed after 14 may - but can still not obtain updates. I am running family safety / security essentials - firewall on - never had this problem !  The only "funny" thing I notice is that Isince a couple of weeks media player sharing not functioning (DEP)  - but I do not use / need this .... I have cleaned up disk .... do not know what to do (re-installing isnot really an option). Any ideas ?Proble seems to be related to software licensing service gives error when I try to start this serice : 80070005

    Ah - so that's why you posted in the Genuine Vista forum, rather than
    Windows Updates?
    You may still be better off posting this question there.
    Are you sure that the error number is 80070005? - that's an 'access denied'
    How did you attempt to start the service? - through the command-line, or via
    You need to use a Command Prompt with Elevated permissions to do it from
    there, it's a lot easier to use the Services options - where you should set
    the Service to Automatic.
