Error Message 0x80070005 critical error - windows will close in one minute

Question: Error Message 0x80070005 critical error - windows will close in one minute

I recently have been getting the Error message Windows has encountered a critical error and will close in one minute.
I do not have the Brazilian financial Active X control that became corrupted, or if I do, I cannot find it. I have Vista 32-bit on an Acer Aspire laptop. This message comes up after I login and I can either access the Internet via Safe mode w/Networking, or do a System Restore, at which time the laptop works for about two or three times and then the error message comes back.
Do I have a bug? Please help!!!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Error Message 0x80070005 critical error - windows will close in one minute

I followed the preparation guide and when I tried to run dds.scr, the black screen came up really fast and then disappeared and nothing ever came up. When I tried to run RootRepeal.exe, I was able to tell it to scan, but then I never received a report. When I tried to run it again, it said that I didn't have permission, and when I tried to delete it, it said the same thing! I am the administrator...I have Vista 32bit and I am getting the error code 0x80070005 windows has encountered a critical error and will now close. I run system restore to get it to stop, but that only works a few times, and then I get the error message again.
What do I do now??

Hi,

My machine had a virus attack. I used the instructions for Anti-malaware bytes and tried to remove it. Now the machine shuts down as soon it is started. I get an error message saying, "windows has encountered a critical error and will close in one minute". That happens in all the different modes, safe, safe with networking, normal etc and happens with internet on or off.
I am not able to run any logs as recommended by you because I don't get enough time to run anything. The machine boots and just shuts down.

Please help. I have humongous amount of data, that I can't even access because of this issue.

Thanks

Greetings And Welcome To The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems. I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.

Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

On Tuesday morning around 8:15 I got a little dialog box that stated (as close as I can recall) that Windows had encountered a critical problem and would restart in one minute, and that I should save my work. When I clicked my start button I saw that the restart option was grayed out, so I just had to sit there and wait for the restart to happen. Once it did and the computer was back, everything seemed normal. I looked in the Event Viewer and the nearest thing I could find to a cause was something about lsass.exe having stopped working. Also, later I noticed in the Windows update control panel that Windows Defender had updated itself at 8 AM that morning (at least according to my OS).

Relevant details: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit- I was running Firefox, iTunes and Steam at the time. My antivirus program is avast! free version. Everything is updated. My version of Java was one revision out of date (7 update 4 instead of 5--since fixed). I use FoxIt Reader and not Adobe so that's not a vector. I ran a full Malwarebytes scan and found nothing. Also ran TDSSkiller.exe and found no problems.

There has been no strange behavior since the forced reboot, and there were Windows updates installed yesterday, and everything seems to be behaving properly, but on another forum I frequent someone said this might be a rootkit, so I'm paranoid. Is there something I can do to be sure?

Answer:Win7 "critical error" restarting in 1 minute message--infection?

It looks like ZeroAccess rootkit.Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Just this afternoon, I went to use my PC and got the following error; Windows has experienced a critical error and will restart in 1 minute.

Running Windows 7 64 bit....With automatic updates so it should be the latest version of Windows...

My anti virus (Avira 2012 Internet Suite) pops up and states I have 2 viruses. But before the AV can do anything (delete the files) Windows shuts down....I finally got into Safe Mode and tried running my AV, while it was scanning I then got a BSOD. Had to start all over again; Running MalwareBytes now before trying to do the AV scan, just to see if MalwareBytes catches anything.

I have uninstalled the only application I've installed in 3 months, and problem still persists...

I have a Hijackthis log if it needs to be viewed...Just let me know and I'll upload it.
 

Answer:Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

when you get the 1 minute warning, try typing from the start menu "shutdown -a" or "shutdown /a", and the countdown should go away, and you should be able to remove the viruses.

Be sure to disable your system restore backups (delete them), or the viruses may come back. Re-enable them as soon as you are sure you have gotten rid of the viruses.

Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?
my computer says this each time it is started in normal start-up mode. I recently got the Doctor Malware virus and I downloaded the anti malware software to get rid of it but i cant update it or even find out if it did anything because now every time i try to start up in normal mode i get the message "windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and it restarts.
also, i've already tried a system restore
also, unfortunately, i cant even run safe mode with networking. so no internet.
i tried a couple registry cleaner. it seemed to find and fix a lot stuff but then when i restarted the computer and it still shut down right away.

Answer:Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?

Try getting to safe mode and do the following:
Just turn on your computer with F8 pressed.

Choose Safe Mode option.

Logon using your Administrator level user.

Next, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run...

Type MSCONFIG and click OK.

Go to the SERVICES tab and search for Gbp Service.

Uncheck it and click OK.

Restart and see if the problem is gone.

Hi. I have recently had a few problems with my laptop which is only a couple of months old. A few days ago I received numerous warnings about Trojan threats through Windows Defender. My AVG scanner is not working (looking into this) so I am not yet certain if there is a real threat on my computer.

Anyway, starting yesterday and continuing today, when starting my laptop, I receive an error message saying that there has been a 'critical error' and that the laptop will restart in 1 minute. This morning, I received this message 4 times in a row and only on my 5th restart did I not get the message.

I have no idea whether this error is linked to Trojan threats or anything else but it is very worrying for me, seeing as my laptop is new.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks in advance for your help. It appears I have randomly picked up a virus of some sort wherein whenever I am connected to the internet, my computer gives the "Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now." message, and my computer restarts as the message states. I have run adaware and malwarebytes' antimalware with mixed results, and downloaded a windows malware removal tool, but none have completely eliminated the problem. I can turn the internet off via a switch on my netbook (it is a HP Mini 110-1100 with Windows 7 Starter), and when I have that turned off before I log in, the computer works as normal, but of course the internet is a much-needed tool.

I'm not sure if I have a virus or just a corruption of something, but I get a constant looping of Windows beginning to open after I log in then shutting down and restarting back to the login page.  I was able to do F8 and get into the System Recovery Options.   I ran the Farbar Recovery Scan and have the FRST.txt log and the Search.txt logs, included.    
 
I've been having memory shortage issues and really don't know in what state my backups are in (the backups ate up so much space I ended up deleting things I probably shouldn't have), so I'd really like to try to get into the system and do some data backups somehow.  I should have a running backup of my basic work files on my D drive via an online backup, but I don't have anything set to backup online on my C drive (mostly program files reside there, I keep most user data on my D).  Can I backup files somehow even if I can't run Windows?  
 
Please advise on recommended steps for both data recovery (if possible) and virus removal.

Yesterday, while using my computer, my anti-virus 'Microsoft Security Essentials' popped up stating it had found a virus. Within a second, a windows update window popped up with an update ready to install, followed immediatly by 'AntiSpyware Doctor' and a window saying 'Windows has encountered a serious error and will shut down in one minute' which it then proceeded to do. This continues to appear everytime the computer is started.

Starting the computer in safe mode allowed me to use Malware Bytes to eliminate Antispyware docter, as it no longer appears when starting the computer, however the error message ,above, still continues. I believe the problem occurs only when the computer is connected to the internet as it does not occur if i am able to stop my computer from automatically connecting to the internet upon startup.

I tried a system restore, however it fails and reports a problem with a file in the drivers folder in the system 32 folder. I am unable to interact with this file at all as the computer tells me it is unable to find the source disc whenever i try.

I have access to a Windows Install disc.

So I did check his PC but there was no problem found on it as I have scanned it with Norton latest version which is installed on the same machine. Logs were clean. Also having SPYBOT on it. It was showing all clean logs. I have decided to install Microsoft security Essential with that as I did not find any virus/malware prob. As I have been using different kind of Antiviruses on different machines in real life with Microsoft Security essential and did not have any Compatibility issues.

But after installing that I found list of viruses Microsoft Security Essential have detected. Which was having same Virus but with different strings. sirefef.r

It quarantined almost half but then System gave Critical Error Msg and gave msg that it will restart in one minute. every time when I start it will restart in 1 minute. Then I have tried safe mode but it worked for twice only then it started giving same error in SAFE MODE too and restarted.

Did this always happen, or is this something new? If it just happened, did it occur after a Windows update, or you updating a driver? Try restoring your computer to a date before any of this occurred. Does this address the problem?

Oh, and check out:

Hi..I just bought a refurbished computer. Its an HP Desktop Computer COMPAQ 6005 PRO Phenom II X3 3.0 GHz 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit .

In order to install windows for the first time on this refurbished machine, I have to choose "system restore" at boot.
It starts to go through the process of installing windows, then I get this message : "Windows Restore Critical Failure. This can be caused by a missing Windows image".
Anyone know how I can fix this. I cant get into windows, because I first have to install it using the system restore. So the only computer access I have, is when it boots up.

I have tried to contact Newegg...which is where I bought it, but no luck. All repairs and service is through the warranty company...cant get in touch with them either.

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks.

Hello

whenever I sign in to my user account I get a blue window with a critical error message......saying Start menu and cortana aren't working ( I have cortana turns off in options anyway ) then it says we will try and fix it next time you sign in, with the only option to sign out.....this happens every time I start the PC up, but OK after signing out and in again , is it anything to do with shutup10 that I ran recently, although it's not affecting my windows 10 laptop.

thanks

Hello all, I noticed today that my Thinkpad W520 doesn't charge the battery when the AC adapter is plugged in. I know I have a bad battery that uses its powers in 30-40 minutes once the AC adapter is disconnected. However, I started seeing addition symptoms: 1. If I shutdown the laptop and remove the battery, then try to boot with the AC adapter connected, I get the following message: "0190: Critical low-battery error" and the laptop shutdowns.  2. If I connect the battery and AC adapter, I can use the laptop, however, the battery remains at 6% and doesn't get charged no matter how long I keep the adapter connected. My bios is up to date. Anyone knows what might be the issue or how to isolate it? could it be the motherboard?  Thanks

Answer:Error Message "0190: Critical low-battery error"

So you get the 0190 error without the main battery installed?Does the system forget the time when it's powered off without the main battery attached?

Hi All,
I've been having some issues with my PC for the last couple weeks now. I've been noticing the problems mostly when playing Eve or tf2. I thought it might be temps since it's warm out so I monitored them but they looked to be stable. I then thought it might have been my nvidia driver update and rolled those back with no success. Every now and then while playing a game I get the critical error sound but with no message and nothing in event viewer.

Eve was having problems in windowed mode, the FPS dropped to like 6fps, so I turned it off and in fullscreen fps went up to 60 something. I use to run in windowed mode all the time with no problems. Also, during certain times in the game when on vent the audio cracks really bad and the game is jerky. tf2 has been crashing every now and then and it use to run great before.

I've checked spybot and that had one virus but I cleaned that out. Besides that I'm not sure what it is or what else I can test. Maybe I should run a stress test and see if anything comes out of that. Any help would be great, thanks.

Here are my system stats:
XP Sp3
Intel core2d 1.86 (overclocked to 2.45)
2x1gb ram
geforce 8800 gts (640mb)
Soundmax onboard sound
 

Answer:Critical error sound, no error message

Whenever troubleshooting stability problems, I recommend returning all clock speeds to the defaults, and don't OC until problem resolved. Sudden shutdowns with no entries in the Event Logs means the shutdown was indeed, sudden. This typically means hardware, and yes heat is often the cause. I would open the case and make sure it is clean of heat trapping dust. Make sure all fans work fine. Blast a desk fan in there while testing. Inspect for bulging or leaky capacitors. Ensure power supply is good. You can test RAM using one of the following programs. Both require you to create and boot to a bootable floppy disk or CD to run the diagnostics. Using the floppy method is generally easier (and another reason to include floppy drives in new builds). However, the CD method is just as effective at detecting RAM problems. Allow the diagnostics to run for several passes or even overnight. You should have no reported errors.

Windows Memory Diagnostic - see the easy to follow instructions under Quick Start Information.
or
MemTest86+ (for more advanced users) - an excellent how-to guide is available here.​
Alternatively, you could install a single RAM module and try running with that to see if it fails. Repeat process with remaining modules, hopefully identifying the bad stick through a process of elimination.

Answer:HELP!! error message: windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.

You've definitely got some nasty malware on your system there. Please click on and follow the directions in the 5 Steps link in my signature below to scan your system for malware and to post a Deckard's System Scanner log in the HijackThis forum section. Unfortunately we cannot advise about HijackThis logs in the XP section.

As far as the explorer error, if you have a Windows XP CD you can insert the cd and then go to Start > Run and type "cmd" w/o quotes. Then type in "sfc /scannow" without quotes to run the Windows File Checker. It will check the system files on your PC and if they have been altered they will be replaced with a copy from your XP cd.

Definitely follow the 5 steps link in my signature below though. You've got some nasties on your system.

I tried to install Windows 7 Ultimate and right after the big white window that says it's completing the installation, I get some error message that basically blinks on my screen so fast that I cannot read it. Also, I checked event viewer and see no recorded errors. The O/S completes installation and lets me use it just fine, but I am worried about this error since I have no glue what it says. It takes me about a half hour to regenerate the error message. I am using an IDE drive with a 10GB partition. I have tried deleting and reformatting it several times. Every time I installed the O/S, I get this error.

Hi, everybody. I downloaded Windows 10 from the the Microsoft site, because I had reserved a free copy. I had Window 8.1 before this.

Up till now, it seems that most things worked fine. I tweaked it a little and allowed the new program to "get used to my desktop." After first being unable to transfer stuff over, Windows 10 finally began complying with requests for switching things, etc.

A brand-new problem has begun with the Start icon, which is the Micro "flag" at the lower left of the screen. Every time I hit it in order to sign off, I get a message..... "Critical Error. Your Start Menu button isn't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in." It offers me a box to sign off within the error message, fortunately. I went on line and found that a number of people are experiencing this same problem. And many of their concerns are directed to others in the Microsoft Community website. By the way, it doesn't happen all the time, only most of the time. When it doesn't happen, it seems to be because I've cleared by temporary files, emptied my trash bin, and deleted the adware that has accumulated with each use. If I'm lucky, that is.

Another thing I've noticed. I use Superantispyware, among other malware detectors. I've used it for XP, 8.1 and now 10. Each time it has picked up a bit more adware and minor spyware. But, recently, I have found that when I'm done PC-ing and ready to shut down, af... Read more

I was on my laptop today when I got a blue screen and my wallpaper changed to say that I have a critical warning. The exact desktop message reads: "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected. It is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer before all spyware removed."I managed to get rid of the desktop message (using AntiVir until the scan stopped for no apparent reason. The scan did not complete and I can't get it to scan again.) Under Desktop, the "critical_warning" file still appears in the list. The current wallpaper is the blue screen without the message written out above and I can't change it because this Desktop/Background page is locked up.My homepage was changed (to google, oddly). I cannot access system restore, nor can I use Malewarebytes or other antivirus programs because I get a message that reads: "Windows cannot access the specified file. You may not have permissions to access the item." I have AntiVir PE Classic, which also won't fully run (it starts scanning, then stops).Fortunately, I have a desktop so that I can post here and try to resolve the problem.

One or two links here indicate there may be conflcts with installed programs, for example gravis.

http://groups.google.com/groups?q="CoInitialize(NULL)+failed+&hl=en

You can also try disabling dma mode in the cd-rom device manager properties>settings page, although it did not work for one person who tried it. It does sometimes resolve install problems.

Check with the vendor's support to see if there are any known install conflicts that would produce that error.

Second, go to settings and check in accounts and sync your main account
If the above does not work, try a soft reset
Which kind of reset can't you do? Soft, factory or hard?
What's your current OS version and phone model?

I had been away for about a month. Before leaving, I had run cCleaner on my Windows XP Pro-SP3 desktop (but don't know whether this caused my current problem.) Upon returning, I tried doing four Microsoft Updates (KB2820917, KB2808735, KB2813170, and KB2813345) from an Administrator account. All failed with Installation Failure, Error Code: 0x80070005.
 
First, I tried the Microsoft Update Autofix from http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update.
Issue persists.
 
Then, I contacted Microsoft Answer Desk; they said it could be Permissions or malware, but did not provide any solutions.
 
I clicked on the cCleaner backup to restore my registry, but that raised an error message: "Cannot import the file name. Error accessing the registry."
 
Can someone please help?
 
Thanks.

Hey,
I've been attempting to upgrade my Windows Vista Home Basic to Windows 7 home premium but during the process an error occurs saying it cannot create the installation file or something. So i then copied all the files from the disk onto my external hard drive although it couldn't transfer one or two read only files. I then used the external hard drive to upgrade vista to windows 7, i got to the stage of 'copying windows files' but it then came up with the error 'Windows cannot install required files. Network problems may be preventing Windows from accessing the file. Make sure the computer is connected to the network and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070005'. My network was functioning perfectly and i doubt that is the problem. I think it may be something to do with the registries. I have attempt once before to upgrade to Windows 7 but i then got the Black Screen Of Death so i then down graded back to Vista. Now im really desperate to upgrade as my laptop 'HP Pavillion dv6000' is really slow when running Vista. Thanks for the support!
Lahiru,

It's not a huge problem because it doesn't interrupt my work, but I worry about what it might mean (I don't want IE to suddenly blow up on me and mess up my new computer.) Does anyone know why such a message pops up and what can be done to make it go away? Thanks!

When I switched on My Dell laptop recently I had a Critical Error notification saying start-up menu and Cortana were not operating. This meant limited access to Computer and no items showing on Task bar . I eventually got into control panel and System and did a system restore back to 3rd March. Disaster has occurred as now on start up I find I have lost numerous programmes including Microsoft Office Suite 2007.
I have found a file showing all the apps that have been deleted from the computer and wonder if there is any way I can restore this. My outlook file has been lost and therefore my access to emails but can use my desktop for this.
My email is [email protected]

If there are any restore points available later than march 3rd try restoring from one of those. Make sure that on the restore menu that lists the available restore dates, you tick the box 'Show other restore points'

everytime i go to open/play/run the program the screen goes black like it's about to start, then a critical error message pops up that reads: Invalid ID in load header

I purchased a new E530 laptop six days ago. It was 100% charged when I turned it off the other day.  When I turned it back on the following day, it was down to about 85% battery.  When it got to around 79%, I got a critical low battery message and it shut down, so that I had to go plug it into the AC. I checked the Power Manager and it seems to be set at 10% low, 5% critical.  So what is up? 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:E530 Critical Low Battery error message

Try resetting the battery.  I have seen recommendations of somehow using this "Power Manager" to do so, but I am a Linux user.  So what I do is power down, remove the battery.  While A/C is plugged in, press and hold the power button.  Hold for some 30 sec and then remove the power, still holding.  Hold for another 30 sec, and then plug back in while still holding.  Then hold for another 30 sec and let go.  It will power on.  Let it boot, and then reinsert your battery.  So just for the sake of clarity, it is 90 sec of continuous holding.   I don't know that this will work for your specific problem, but my computer does something similar from time to time (namely when I change batteries) and this works every time.

Answer:Messenger Service: Critical Error Message!

Do the pop up advertisements look like the one in the example shown here? If so, it indicates your system is not secure and you should follow the instructions to "Disable Windows Messenger Service". The Messenger service is a network-based system notification service service that transmits net send messages and messages that are sent through the Alerter service between client computers and servers. It should not be confused with Windows Messenger which is a proprietary instant messaging client included in Windows XP, 2000 and 2003 Server.

so i think it might be some hardware error. it is very hard to work on this pc right now, because the mouse isnt working either and it has gotten damn slow..
The pc is allready 5 years old too.. but he doesnt want to buy a new one, but he would like to buy some new hardware components if necessary. The PC got 1,66 ghz and 256 MB ram.

I allready changed the windows settings so it wont reboot automatically but give me a blue screen instead.
on the blue screen it says:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Technical information:
STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0509FA04, 0x0000001C, 0x00000001, 0x806F2891)

and much informational text which only says talk to your administrator..
I just made a hijackthis log too, but im not sure if it is of any help..
BTW: The date and time is wrong.. just made the scan but the date is wrong on his pc.

Good Afternoon,

So Im fairly adept with computers but I cant seem to solve this problem.

On my VAIO FZN, there seems to be a virus which has taken control of my computer, most likely some sort of rootkit. When the computer starts

it says "You are about to be logged off - Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now."

after about 3-5minutes. BUT the catch is that this only occurs when the computer has the front LAN switch turned on. when this switch is off it works fine except for that I cant connect to the internet. I have run multiple AV programs which have removed some viruses but obviously not the main problem.
I have also run Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 from my flashdrive which was successful in its scan but since the computer cant get online it wont run the full program (to update), at least I dont think it has.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions,

Thanks so much,
Blake

A window keeps popping up telling me I am infected by a trojan and it wants me to download a removal tool, which turns out to be IE Defender. I gather that my IE was hijacked to go to a fake site disguised as a Microsoft/sympatico site. If you aren't aware, Microsoft Canada and Bell Sympatico went partners a couple of years ago. My original home page was www.bourque.org, a Canadian news site. On the fake site I was shown an add to download a program to optimize IE7 for use with sympatico. So I figured why not. Big mistake. After that the pop-ups started and I ended up downloading IE Defender. I uninstalled IE defender but can't get rid of the pop-ups. I guess they want you to buy the program which stop the pop-ups. I have tried almost everything, even from a thread on this site dealing with the same problem, except I'm using Windows Vista, so some of the things to be tried from that post don't work on here. Funny thing is I never use IE. I am a Firefox user. I don't know what made me open IE in the first place. And the pop-ups only occur from within windows, meaning when I open IE or anything related to windows explorer, It never happens when I open firefox or any programs.

I have a PC that is running Windows XP Pro and has recently started to run very slowly, first when booting and then when actually up and running. I have wiped the system and reloaded Windows this made no difference, I have tried changing the ram which also made no difference.I then ran PQ Magic on the PC which brought up a critical error message number 1527 - bad update sequence number. So I repartioned the drive using PQ Magic and reloaded Windows, it was still slow, so I again ran PQ Magic and it came up with the same error message!! ANY IDEAS?

after several years this morning, I got a black screen with a message saying the OS was not genuine. It is I have the retail upgrade disk in front of me. I upgraded from Vista. I tried several of the recommendations in various threads here all to no avail.

The activation application gives the error 0x80070005 "access denied" regardless of whether I try online activation or by phone. I even spent over an hour with MS tech support after I tried to activate by phone. They all agreed that my product key is good and they took remote control and tried a few things that didn't work. I've got a call scheduled tomorrow night with the next level of tech. Also my Office 2010 applications refuse to run with the following error: "...cannot verify license for this product....repair via control panel..." I did that as well and still get the same error. Don't think this is coincidental...

Any advice would be much appreciated. I backed up all "user" files just last night as well (coincident?) I'll start new if I have to but would rather not.

I've been experiencing a particularly frustrating problem since upgrading from Windows 10 Pro v1511 Build 10586.494 to v1607 Build 14388 a few days ago (update: I am now on Build 14390 with the same issue; Build 14393 is downloading now but I suspect it will have the same issue as well). In fact, this is the second time I've installed a preview build since I had the same issue going from Build 10586 to 14385 and decided to restore my backup.

The issue is odd because Windows is otherwise working fine. I have no crashes or stability issues, games, programs and apps all run as expected and the Windows Store is finding updates for apps and games and installing them. The issue relates ONLY to the Windows Store and its apps and games, specifically with the installation of new ones. Windows Update is apparently working fine (although at the moment it is only finding and updating Windows Defender anti-virus definition updates). The problem is if I attempt to install any new Windows Store app or game, where the storage location is anywhere but C: (I have the default apps location under Settings > System > Storage set to H, then they fail after a small sub-1 MB download with error 0x80070005.

What I have determined is the following:

Answer:Windows Store error 0x80070005 when using a different location to C:

Regarding the Account_Unknown entries in my opening post, I've seen these accounts in the security permissions of folders on my C drive but they just show as S entries (i.e. with the Account_Unknown() part).

I checked for updates on the Store this morning and it found 6 updates; 5 for apps on my C drive and 1 for Forza Motorsport 6: APEX, which is located on my H drive. Needless to say, all 5 apps on the C drive downloaded and updated fine but Forza again threw up the 0x80070005 error.

This issue is absolutely infuriating me at the moment. I know I could delete Forza and with the Storage location for apps set to C redownload. However, while it would update from my C drive I would be unable to move it to my H drive.

If I try to take ownership of the H:\WindowsApps folder then I get a failed message which, I believe, is due to the actual Microsoft.Apex folder because if I try to manually apply Administrators permissions to that folder then I get an error for every file in the folder.

Can anyone help me with this please?

(P.S. This issue still remains if I restore my v1511 backup for a week or so ago so it may not just be an issue specific to the Insider Preview builds after all.)

Hello,
I tried everything to solve this enduring problem. We have about 10 pc's at the company. All with windows 7 professional x64. One of them fails to activate. We work with a windows 2008 SBE server domain
 - Activating online gives error 0x80070005.
- Closing the internet conenction and trying again gives me the option to activate through the phone method. Doing that gives the same error 0x80070005 "access denied".
 We have no firewall enabled. Disabled mcafee antivirus.Tried logging in as domain admin and as local admin.
 Does anyone has an idea about what i could try next?
 
Thanks in advance.
