Solved error Ox80070005 trustedinstaller update denied.

August 18, 2016 at 18:25:16
Specs: Windows 7
Ran different software. No matter what the machine will not update. This is in Windows 7 SP1 64. This has been going on for a lot of people apparently. Error 0x800070005. Johnw got me going once. Took a good bit of time on the problem for me. Trustedinstaller missing don't know were it went, missing all on it's own.

You have to highlight all the text then copy and paste it into Notepad. You then save it as "Reset.cmd" (without the quotes). You then right click Reset.cmd and select Run as administrator. Is that what you did?

[If you want to make sure the contents are correct temporarily rename it to Reset.txt then open it]

Just to keep the future easy, can we just sort the terminology:

Reboot in computers just means shut down and restart. I assume you meant Factory Restore or Windows re-install.

CPU (Central Processor Unit) is a big chip, usually with a fan on it. I assume you meant "computer".

That out of the way, I'm surprised that stopping wuauserv (End Task?) cured the problem, especially when restore (or whatever) was unable to do so. Better keep an eye on it after a few restarts and check manual Windows Updates out from time to time too.

Derek I meant what I said about doing a reboot. I shut down and started up again. I found sometimes that lets the machine put itself in order. Whatever goes on with updates, when the machine looks for them, wuauserv starts up and uses large amounts of resources. I can see whats happening in task manager under CPU usage. It only runs when trying to update. If I stop it everything goes back to normal. johnw knew what was going on but then again that seems what he loves to do as you do. I've been through this before, I find as well as others. One who was in the know told me every other Tuesday on update day it would happen to him so the only way he avoided this was to update manually no auto anything on updates.He did not tell me how he got his machine to that point.

Aha, it was this the fooled me: "Tried a reboot get back to you as soon as it finishes". As this is usually quite quick I assumed something more ambitious.

Windows Search can be bad at times and in particular it likes to hide system files from you. Try this to search for trustedinstaller.exe", it is brilliant:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/sw...
There might be more than one copy and also some similar names. It is only that exact exe you are interested in.

Yes indeed I know Johnw very well and he's a great helper. He's not been around for a few days so he could be taking a breather or something else. If necessary I can contact him but I prefer to wait until he pops up on other posts again rather than risk being a pest.

You should have the Windows Snipping Tool onboard:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool

You can then do a screen capture by putting a box around the Swiftsearch result. Alternatively there is a good free program called MWSnap:
http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/m...

The main thing needed is the file sizes and location for those with the exact name (trustedinstaller.exe) as there might be scope for some file juggling if the sizes are identical. It rests with whether Windows permissions will allow this.

I might have to go AWOL for a while later too.

OK, it's there and in the right place (C:\Windows\Servicing). Did you get an error message that said it was missing? If so then it seems most likely there has been a registry corruption so that Windows cannot find it. You might be set to hide system files which is why you didn't find it in that location.

Did you check that the service was setup correctly - see my #9?

We might need to embark on Windows repair but before we go much further do a quick check for malware by running these three freebies in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "download" button rather than the "buy" button).
Install and Run the program but before running the Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

Please copy/paste the logs on here.

Just before I ship out for a few hours:

Re #43
It's odd that the update arrangements are different on your Win 7 but you could look at the start menu path instead:
http://www.sevenforums.com/windows-...

Re #44
The access date is when the file was last opened, by a program, a person, or most likely the operating system in this case.

The settings for hidden folders are in "Control Panel > Folder Options > View". I usually leave the blob in "Show hidden files, folders and drives". As long as you don't go around deleting files it is fine. I also think it is useful keep "Hide extensions for known file types" unchecked. I only uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" temporarily when there is some special need because it has a knack of shwing desktop.ini files in user areas, including the desktop.
