    Hi there,

    Can somebody please help me with my problem...

    Automatic Update of windows does not work anymore.
    When I try to start the service Automatic Update in my service window,
    the message "Unable to open service automatic updates for reading on
    local computer"
    "Error 5: Access is denied."

    I tried to
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuapi.dll - succeeded
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\atl.dll - succeeded
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wucltu.dll - succeeded
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wups.dll - succeeded

    but the
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng.dll - DllRegisterServer failed.
    Return code was 0x80070005.

    What can I do to solve this problem?

    Greetings.
