The error code “0x80070005” is also known as the “ACCESS DENIED” error. It normally happens when you don’t have enough file or registry permissions that are required to install an update. Because installing an update modifies the operating system or creates global changes to the system, administrative privileges are required.

If you are the administrator of the computer or you are using an administrator account and you encounter this problem when installing a Windows Update, you need to scan your computer for any sign of infection after fixing the problem. This is because file or registry permissions may be modified by malware. To fix the problem, try installing the update again.

If the problem continues, download the SubInACL Tool and install it. Once installed, start Notepad then copy and paste the following to Notepad:

@echo off


echo Determine whether we are on an 32 or 64 bit machine

if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%”==”x86” if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%”==”” goto x86

set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles(x86)%

goto startResetting


set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles%



if exist “%ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl.exe” goto filesExist

echo ***ERROR*** – Could not find file %ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\subinacl.exe. Double-check that SubInAcl is correctly installed and re-run this script.
goto END


pushd “%ProgramFilesPath%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools”

subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
subinacl.exe /subdirectories %windir% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f

echo Press any key to exit . . .
pause >NUL




Save the file as reset.cmd. Open Windows Explorer then navigate to the location of the file you saved. Right-click reset.cmd and select “Run as administrator.” When until it is finished then try installing the Windows Update again.
