Hi, I got windows update error with error code 80080005. I tried NETSH WINSOCK RESET as Noel said in the other post, I changed the window update setting, I deleted all the files in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\ as someone has suggested, and uninstalled Malawarebytes (antispyware) and Norton (antivirus) softwares....ran fix it from microsoft which says error fixed..........still the same error message from the windows update. I did, however, got the latest windows defender update installed. As of now my windows update main page shows the following:
Most recent check for updates: Never
Updates were installed: Never
and error message: Windows could not search for new updates, an error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer with the error code 80080005. I greatly appreciate you any help.
