I have encountered a problem recently with installing some Windows update and am getting an an error code 80070005. The laptop I use is a HP pavilion g series and I run Norton security. I have googled the problem but the replies are somewhat confusing to my old brain. I have run a full security scan but nothing showed.

Help please as these updates are marked Important.

Regards Nigel
