Do not update Windows (error code 8007005)

Windows do not update. I get the error code 8007005. Eventually Windows is damaged? I have recently reinstalled Windows 7 upgrade (from Vista) when I did it I got an error (no real product Windows) but it is, and product code has been accepted.

This problem will also stop McAfee update also and I uninstalled McAfee as recommended and now impossible to reinstall the software.

Please, any help is needed.




I'm glad to hear that your problem has been resolved and that Windows works as expected. Thank you for taking the time to share the status of the issue.

Kind regards

  • Java update has not completed windows error code 1603

    When I try to update Java on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, the Setup program ends with an error message "Java update has not ended. Error code: 1603. Please consult the Help Center Java to correct that information or contact your system administrator. »

    Java Help Center is not useful. It indicates that this is a known issue and is being researched. This status is apparently true for over a year with no resolution, it seems as if not enough resources are devoted to research. The subject alluded to the possible incompatibility with Microsoft MS14-049 KB2918614 security update.

    I uninstalled KB2918614 and still the same error.

    I uninstalled Java 7, rebooted the PC and tried to install Java 8 and got the same error. Then I installed the update of Java 7 79 and it worked, but I can't go beyond Java 7 for an evolutionary support for Java edition.

    These all fail:

    JRE-8u45-windows - i586.exe

    JRE-8u45-windows - x 64 .exe

    JRE-8u60-windows - i586.exe

    JRE-8u60-windows - x 64 .exe

    Favorite using your search engine Internet web searches will bring up many people having the same problem, but no final solution. Variations on uninstall all versions of Java and re - install, change the language to English settings, remove KB2918614, use the Offline Installer, use the installer of auto update online, hack the registry, etc., but it's as if all of this is purely by accident lucky work around solutions and there is no real real an official answer as to what is happening. I tried them all and I still can't get Java 8 to install. I can't update Java.

    1. What is the solution to the 1603 error?
    2. If I stick with Java 7 forever?
    3. And although my OS 64-bit computer, must I install the i586 or x 64 Java, or both?

    Screenshots of the error:



    On a whim, I disabled McAfee VirusScan 8.8 and Alto! installing Java 8 worked.

    There is no message in my logs VSE VSE was the cause. However I saw messages clearly connected "would be blocked by an Access Protection rule (rule is currently not applied)" but in fact, they are apparently put into force and prevent the successful install Java 8. Or at least that's my theory.

    What's new on Java 8 and VSE VSE to prevent installation of Java 8?

    Thank you for your update on the issue.

    I'm sorry for my late reply. Basically, the website auto detects your Windows 7 architecture and download the appropriate version of the driver. You can also check the properties of the architecture of your system and check with driver version to download from the Web site.

    Another way around the problem is that, as the webcam works perfectly with Windows Vista, you can download and install the version of the Windows Vista-compatible driver and run the program in compatibility mode as shown in the following link.

    Hello domgolf,

    Windows Update exception code 0 x 00000641 / 0 x 80070641 usually indicates a problem with the Windows Installer service.

    Sometimes it's because of a difficulty to access; Sometimes, that means he is absent or inactive (disabled) for a reason any.

    If you have used Iolo System Mechanic or any other registry cleaner for automatic crossings (auto-fix) and these exception codes, the cause is an overagressive difficulty of this app.

    First proposal is to cancel these final corrections by S M, then make sure it is not set to autorun or Auto setting.
    Do NOT continue to use System Mechanic until there is a permanent fix of Iolo.

    Contact Iolo ( support

    and request a permanent solution.

    System Mechanic "cleaning the registry" has put a double whammy on your system in having abducted two registry keys.

    The following will set things in order for the registry {at least for service setup}, so that you can then move on to redo the update of Windows.
