Bardos mate are you the only user ie the administrator? see this windows update error 80070005 < typical of a few Google hits.

This thread too might have been better in the Updates section too mate as therein lie the members who are most likely to help out. But no matter I am sure someone will eventually see it that knows more than I do.

I know it is a permissions problem, I am the administrator and still I have this problem. I have seen that thread. Googled all over. There is a proposal in the first post that in a later post someone says is a bad thing to do. So I am still lost.

Ok Bardos and while I am thinking of it have you run either sfc or chkdsk or both - worth a shot

What are you trying to update; the definition file or MSE itself?

List the fixes you've already attempted.

Added: Is this the same problem as your other post? Why are you posting multiple threads?

That's good but you still need to do the chkdsk.

Microsoft Security Essentials update question
If left to its own devices, when does MSE update? I started using MSE recently, and so far, I find myself updating manually. I've installed MSE on a laptop, too, and after 2 days, I updated manually. I didn't find a setting for updating. Did I miss something? And I have Windows Update set to update...

Microsoft Security Essentials Update Utility
One disadvantage of Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is that it uses Windows Update to update the virus definition files. If you disabled the Windows update for some reasons MSE won’t update anymore. The MSE Update Utility can be used here to update MSE even if Windows Update is disabled.
