First, reset the firewall

Right-click Start menu, Control Panel, System and Security, Windows Firewall.

Second, re-registration documents

1, to determine the current system file integrity, and no malicious dll file case.

2, use the command to re-register all the system dll file again.

3, right-click start menu, command prompt (administrator) input:

For% 1 in (% windir% \ system32 \ *. Dll) do regsvr32.exe / s% 1

4, run the command will appear after the error message, which is normal.

5, all completed after the restart, after the restart should be able to install the update.

0x80004005 error code is because there is no correct registration of documents, or by the firewall caused by the block, so you can use the above approach to solve Win10 update KB3116869 patch error 0x80004005 problem
