I have been searching the internet for A solution to this vista error 80070005! But with no luck anything I have read has not helped. It is A HP dv9205 laptop running windows vista home! If anyone has some advice it would be greatly appreciated. Since this I am unable to do updates. This is my fiance's lap top and all she does is play those HP games.

This issue occurs if one or more of the following conditions are true:
• The DCOM configuration is incorrect.
• Your user account is a member of the Guests group.
• The security descriptor in the Automatic Updates service is incorrect.
• The local security policy is incorrect.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps on client computers.
Step 1: Verify DCOM security
1. Click Start, click Run, type Dcomcnfg, and then click OK.
2. Expand Component Services, and then expand Computers.
3. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
4. Click the COM Security tab.
5. Under Access Permissions, click Edit Default.
6. Verify that the following accounts are listed:
7. If any one of these accounts is missing in the Access Permission box, follow these steps:
a. Click Add, click Advanced, and then click Locations.
b. In the Locations box, click the Local_Computer_Name, and then click OK.
c. Click Find Now.
d. Press CTRL, click the required account names, and then click OK two times.
e. In the Group or User names box, click an account that you added, click Local Access in the Permissions for Account_Name box, and then click to select the check box in the Allow column.
f. Repeat step 7e for all the accounts that you just added, and then click OK.

Step 2: Verify DCOM default properties
1. Click the Default Properties tab.
2. Verify that the following configuration:
• The Enable Distributed COM on this computer check box is selected.
• In the Default Authentication level box, Connect is selected.
• In the Default Impersonation level box, Identify is selected.

3. Make any required changes, and then click OK.
4. Restart the computer.

Step 4: Verify the security descriptor in the Automatic Updates service

1. Download the Subinacl utility. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

2. Double-click the downloaded file, and then follow instructions in the Windows Resource Kit Tools Setup Wizard. By default, the Subinacl utility is installed in the following directory:
C:\\Program Files\\Windows Resource Kits\\Tools
3. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
4. At the command prompt, type cd C:\\Program Files\\Windows Resource Kits\\Tools to move to the directory where the Subinacl utility was installed.
5. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
Note In a domain environment, this security setting may be configured by a Group Policy object. If the issue is only temporarily resolved after you type this command, a Group Policy object is probably configured. The domain administrator must modify Group Policy to include the correct security settings.
Step 5: Verify the local security policy

7. Restart the computer.

Step 6: Enable user data persistence in Microsoft Internet Explorer
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
3. Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
4. Click Custom Level.
5. In the Settings dialog box, scroll to the Miscellaneous section.
6. Under Userdata persistence, click Enable.
7. Click OK two times.

If you want me to save you a lot of time from reading for 30 seconds just create a new user account and make an administrator! You could not find anything on Google?
