There can be many reasons for this failure. Mostly, it occurs due to change in security parameter. That mean registry editor has some issues.

Check the below steps to remove the unwanted settings:

  1. Microsoft provides a tool for that. You can Download the SubInACL tool here.
  2. Search for notepad editor and open it.
  3. Copy the code from here and paste it into the file.
  4. Save the file with extension .cmd.
  5. Run the saved file as administrator.

I think you are referring to error code “0x80070005” and not “0x8007005.” You may receive error code “0x80070005” when you try to install a Windows Update but you lack permission. To install a Windows Update, you need both file and registry permissions which are available in administrator accounts but not on limited accounts. This error is also called the “ACCESS DENIED” error.

If you are using an administrator account and you encounter this problem, you need to scan your computer for infection after fixing the problem 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:

@echo off
setlocal
echo.
echo Determine whether we are on an 32 or 64 bit machine
echo.
if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%”==”x86” if “%PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432%”==”” goto x86
set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
goto startResetting
:x86
set ProgramFilesPath=%ProgramFiles%
:startResetting
echo.
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
:filesExist
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 FINISHED.
echo.
echo Press any key to exit . . .
pause >NUL
popd
:END
endlocal

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