I am receiving the error 0x80070020 when accessing Windows Update. One of the solutions is to reboot in Safe Mode with networking support. When I do this, my USB wireless broadband connection software will not connect to the Internet - the USB modem does not detect the wireless network.

Any ideas how to proceed?

I disabled my antivirus (Avast) and Windows Firewall, and I was able to connect properly to Windows Update.
