Software: Windows Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool

Are you getting and error message ("0x80070005") when you're trying to run Windows Update because the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation tool fails to install. This problem is occurring because the appropriate permissions were not detected.

Microsoft has created a tool called 'MGADiag.exe' (formerly known as 'WGADiag2.exe') that can fix this problem. All you have to do to correct the is download the MGADiag.exe tool, and then run it.
