Zune PC software intallation error - (0x80004005)

Every time I open the Zune software I am prompted to update.
However when I try to install I get the following message:

Installation Failed
'Setup must stop because the required package 'Zune' didn't install.
Error code: 0x80004005

There are untrusted third party solutions. Can Microsoft please provide a fix?

I had the same install and uninstall issue (0x80004005). I resolved the issue by manually deleting the Zune firewall rules in the Windows Firewall and then performing uninstall/install. I am running Windows 7 (x64). I used the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security tool in Adminstrative Tools to delete all inbound and outbound firewall rules for Zune components. Hope this helps.
