Are you using WSUS ??

If so---Is the group policy pointing to the correct spelling of your WSUS server ??
OleDAuthor Commented:
I have used WSUS but the notebook is not in domain anymore.
There is a GPO for WSUS. It could be a second question. How did I remove the policy?

If I try to get updates from windows I got the error.
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
You would just need to delete this registry key

But now I gor the error 0x80070005
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
0x80070005 is an access denied error
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
You might need to use the subinacl tool
OleDAuthor Commented:

I have run the tool.


After run the fix I get the error 0x80070005.
I understand you get the error 0x80070005 when you try to run Windows Update.  Correct?
When did this start?
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Are you logged in as an admin ??

Screenshot of error ??

Post your windowsupdate.log
OleDAuthor Commented:
Yes, I have try with admin.

Attach windowsupdate.log
The log shows the error 0x80072EE7 in several places.  MS offers a fix
See the section "0x80072EE7 error code" in this reference
OleDAuthor Commented:

I have check the hosts file. Maybee the error 0x80072ee7 is before I delete HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate (see early post)
DonNetwork AdministratorCommented:
"The log shows the error 0x80072EE7 in several places. "  ?????

You're supposed to read windowsupdate.log from the bottom up!!!

Error 0x80072EE7 is the result of not being able to reach WSUS. This was resolved by deleting the registry keys previously mentioned.

The latest error is 0x8024a005 which suggests to run the system update readiness tool
OleDAuthor Commented:
I have installed readiness tool anf now at this time 7:05 it's still searching for updates.
About a hour after last entrieds in log. (see attach)
OleDAuthor Commented:
I think it's work now.................patience was the keyword!
I'am comming back with status
