    Windows Modular Installer


    For a month now i have been having problems with Windows update not working. I have been getting error 80080005 after a lot of searching i think the problem is that something (Avast or Advanced System Care ?) has deleted a file in the windows registry and Windows Modular Installer is no longer working.

    If i try restarting it i get an error 126 I have tried a number of solutions including adding a new registry key but nothing has worked. Now to add to the fun windows will not let me install a new printer driver. I am thinking now of doing a fresh install of Windows but before i do a couple of questions.

    Any new suggestion on getting Windows Modular Installer working again. Windows works fine otherwise

    I have 2 HDDs and i have Windows on one HDD whats the best way to do a fresh reinstall windows

    Hi there ... Your System is completely messed up You could try a Restore point before things went pear shape .. But my guess is you do not have any ..So first thing to do is to Uninstall Advanced System Care as i am sure it has a lot to do with your problems ... Then you might try a Repair and Install ...

    Thanks for the replies i have tried what is suggested but noting worked. So i suppose its a format and reinstall.

    Do i need to set my PC to boot from the Windows DVD

    The link about IOBIT was definatly an eye opener.

    You did try the repair install? that should have given you a pristine registry.

    Yes, Iobit stuff is very troublesome.

    I did try the repair install. But a soon as i start it windows starts to check for updates but never gets past the looking for update screen. As windows update is broken

    There does not seem to be a way to stop it looking for updates

    I also then would suggest a full clean install. Back up all your personal data to some external device first.
