    Error 80070005 on update KB2975719

    Hi all

    I've been installing Windows updates and have come across error 80070005 on update KB2975719. After research, Microsoft say it could be down to permissions (I am the only user on this computer and am the admin), they also suggest creating a .bat script (details here: which have not actually worked for me at all, I have disabled my AV and tried to install it but no luck what so ever. I believe it has downloaded to my computer, just not able to install it.

    I have recently used Encryption File System from Windows accidentally on the C:/Users directory, which I have since decrypted (Other updates have been installed while this has been encrypted no problem), Although it's decrypted etc I still am unable to get it to work.

    Edit: Just downloaded and installed the February updates and restarted with no problem what so ever, it still seems that KB2975719 doesn't want to install though.
