Hi i am having problems as the title suggests with windows updates.

When i done a check i received the following error code 0x80070005 please also see attached screen shot.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thank You

RE: High memory usage by WU. Check what's using the most RAM using RAMmap.

Sort by File Summary > Active

I suspect that you might see a problem with datastore.edb
