    80070005 error code [might be NET framework related]


    Alright guys, I'm getting this very frustrating error code that I've been trying to fix all day long but I still have no luck.

    It basically makes me not able to simply use the Windows 8.1 freely. It appears everywhere and anywhere.

    The error code is 0x80070005 or just 80070005. It makes me think its somehow .NET Framework related. I will post some screens to clearify and also point out why I think its .NET Framework related. I really have no clue on how to fix this no why it's appearing in the first place.

    Alright, well, I started installing Autodesk Maya (I work in it) and everything seemed to be fine until the installer got to the point where it was supposed to install .NET Framework 3.5 and guess what happend. It just gave some unlogical error about me not being connected to the internet. Then I checked the log files and whoala:

    It obviously points out that the error is somewhat related to frameworks.

    Then I tried to manually install it from "Turn Windows features on or off" and guess what happens after some time once I click on the .NET Framework check-box

    Then I decided to do a Windows Update since it has 17 crucial updates that it needs to install, but guess what error message appeared here ASWELL

    Note the error code in all 3 pictures is the same. This is very frustrating.

    I tried disabling firewall, windows defender, and I'm pretty sure I'm logged in as an Administrator.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Read this first:

    Error 0x80070005 in Windows Update when you try to install updates

    That particular error means you are not using an Administrator account to try to download the updates. More discussion and proposed fixes are HERE:

    You may have Malware blocking you as well, so check for Sirefef and other trojans and rootkits:

    I decided to do a "refresh" option that Windows 8 has to offer and it fixed it, fortunately.

    As long as you don't have very many apps and Programs installed, that's OK. Your Tile Apps will stay, but any Desktop Programs you installed will be gone.
