As the old saying goes, you can’t keep a good man down. To be sure, Windows 10 has had some hitches and glitches ever since it rolled out in 2015. While it’s true that Windows 10 fixes some of the annoyances of Windows 8, Microsoft has also introduced a few new ones.

(Note: This is a general guide, and as such, may not be applicable to your particular situation.)

The error 0x80070005 appears when a service fails to start, usually because the service is not responding. This can be due to a number of issues, including an incorrect driver installation, bad registry entries, or a missing service file. In many cases, you can fix errors of this kind yourself, by reinstalling the application or driver, updating your registry or files, or using a third-party utility to fix the problem.

Windows 10 – the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system that is open to all users, in contrast to Windows 8, which was an exclusive product for the more expensive Windows Pro editions.
