That is very strange. Have you checked the server for spyware / viruses? 0x8007005 is an access denied error. Check and ensure that you have the correct perms on the administrator account.

I have resolved thias locally. If automatic updates are turned on you cannot download updates from the updates page of microsoft. Turn off automatice updates and they download fine. This only seems to have happended since SP2.
