How to fix Windows Live Error 0×8007 Problems

  1. Once in Safe Mode, click the start button.
  2. Click on All Programs.
  3. Click on Windows Update.
  4. Follow the on screen prompts you see.
  5. Restart your computer after update is completed.

Solution 2: Run a Virus Scan

This is likely something else that is automatically run at certain intervals on your computer. But, your last scan may have missed a virus or a virus may have just taken hold of your system so an additional scan is a worthwhile endeavor.


Find the anti-virus icon on your desktop.

  1. Double click the icon to open it.
  2. Choose the ‘Full System Scan’ option.
  3. Run a complete scan.
  4. Permanently delete any and all viruses that have been automatically put into quarantine.
  5. Restart your computer to allow changes to take effect.
