I know a little bit but I'm not that savvy when it comes to the inner workings of PC's.

I can't download updates. I keep getting a 80080005 error code. I looked to fix the problem but didn't get nowhere with any of the solutions. Then I stumbled onto this. But it's modifying the registry and I'm kind of iffy in this. What do you think?



To work around this problem, modify the value of the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems\Windows
-
To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
-
In Registry Editor, locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems
-
By default, the Windows entry in the subkey has a value that is similar to the following (all on one line):
%SystemRoot%\system32\csrss.exe ObjectDirectory=\Windows SharedSection=1024,3072 Windows=On SubSystemType=Windows ServerDll=basesrv,1 ServerDll=winsrv:UserServerDllInitialization,3 ServerDll=winsrv:ConServerDllInitialization,2 ProfileControl=Off MaxRequestThreads=16
-
Right-click the Windows entry, and then click Modify. The Edit String dialog box appears. In the Value data box, locate SharedSection, add 512 to SharedSection, and then click OK.
-
The newly changed Windows entry reads as follows:
%SystemRoot%\system32\csrss.exe ObjectDirectory=\Windows SharedSection=1024,3072,512 Windows=On SubSystemType=Windows ServerDll=basesrv,1 ServerDll=winsrv:UserServerDllInitialization,3 ServerDll=winsrv:ConServerDllInitialization,2 ProfileControl=Off MaxRequestThreads=16


Now when I go there I already had a third value added. Do I still add the "512"? or Do I replace the third value with the "512"

Dont mess with the registry if you are not 100% on what you are doing.

When did it start and what happened right before it did? Key questions.

Anti-virus/spyware active?

Good restore point?

Log in with administrator.

1) Disable UAC (Control Panel -> User Accounts)

2) Restart your computer

3) Download Windows update agent (Save it dont run it) even if its already there on your computer Right click and Run it as administrator.

After install, restart. Turn back UAC.

First thing to do when you go to Regedit is click on "File" at the top and then click on "Export". Type in any name and save it to your desktop. You've just backed up your registry in case you mess something up. If something does get messed up, all you have to do is double-click on that saved registry file to restore your registry. Or you can go back to Regedit and "Import" that file to restore.

Next, I would just add the 512 first. If that doesn't work, then I would change the third value to 512 and see if that works. The only other option to fixing this problem when I looked into it was re-installing Windows, unfortunately.

Before you edit this setting the Windows Shared Section will look like this:

Windows SharedSection=1024,3072

It's telling you to add "512" at the end of this number. So it should look like this:

Windows SharedSection=1024,3072,512

But be careful in editing registry keys. They can be very tricky and cause more problems for you in the long run


Hopefully this helps you out.

I tried getting the updates and it gave me the 80080005 error code. I had a couple of registry errors. I fixed them and did the back-up. Scanned for malaware twice with both Avast and Ad-Aware and got nothing, I'm supposedly clean. One site suggested I modify the ActiveX controls, I doubt it did anything. I used the microsoft Fix It button in the trouble shooter. Did nothing that helped.

It's already like this

Hope it's not a security issue that I post this.


Windows SharedSection=1024,20480,768

I had tried the tool before. Didn't do anything worth while. I'm running the machine as the admin and I get access denied when giving commands. This is getting frustrating.

It's not a security issue. But it should read:

Windows SharedSection=1024,3072,512


So, backup your registry like I showed in my first post above, then change it to 1024,3072,512 and let us know if that fixes your problem.

Still wouldn't work. Thanks for the help anyway. Been thinking of switching to Ubuntu for a while now. Might be a good time to do so.

When I looked into it after you posted, many people couldn't get any fix to work other than re-installing Windows. If you're going to do that, might I suggest setting up a dual-boot system so that you have Windows and Ubuntu both installed and you can choose between the two at startup? That's what I am doing at present.

That's a great idea thanks. Since you're using Ubuntu. I'd like to ask you a question. What are the cons for Ubuntu? I only hear good things about it. There must be a couple of itches.

I haven't used it very much, but the major con for me is not being able to play my Windows video games. There is "Wine" for running Windows programs in Ubuntu, but it's not feasible for video games right now.

I'm a huge gamer, so I stick to mostly Windows. I have Ubuntu installed to mess around with it and try to learn it, but haven't had much time to play with it.
