Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.

Q: Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.


I recieve error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run. It doesn't get past the stage of checking for updates.

I've tried several fixes including:
- Waiting 15 minutes and running Windows Update again.
- Letting Windows Update run on its own schedule.
- SFC /Scannow
- Renaming the Catroot2 Folder.
- Running 3 different Fixit tools.
- Clean windows install.

After each and every one of those fixes I've tried windows update and I still get error C80003FA.

SFC Scannow has previously said no errors, but the last run through it said there were unfixable errors. I've got the log, though for brevity's sake I will keep it until someone asks for it.

Any ideas?


Preferred Solution: Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Clean windows install doesn't fix it? You must be blocked, maybe your firewall???

First, excuse my english, I'm trying my best.

I get error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run.

I did the Windows Update Posting instructions. When I did the SURT installation, it didn't finish and I had to reboot the PC. Then it work.

I've tried sfc /scannow several times before with different results: sometimes finished with no errors, sometimes finish with unfixable errors and sometimes didn't finish at all.

I uploaded the CBS.zip

Hope you can help me, thanks.

My Windows Update has been failing to update for a while now and I can't seem to find the solution. Here's the run-down of what happens step by step:Launch an update scan for Windows Update
It scans for a few seconds then says:

Install new Windows Update software

To check for updates, you must first install an update for Windows Update.

Once I click Install it begins to "Install and Update," but then immediately returns to "Checking for Updates."
The next box I see says:

This happens every time I've attempted to update. After looking up the error code, I found the main Windows site that gave me the following explaination:
If you receive Windows Update error 800F081F, it means that Windows Update or Microsoft Update cannot determine the cryptographic service provider, or a file Windows Update requires (named catalog store) is corrupted.

I've looked through multiple Windows forums and How-To's and have tried all the fixes I found. SURT, sfc/ scannow, the standalone download for WU, Windows Update Diagnostic, multiple malware scans, and Microsoft Fixit. Ultimately, I always get the same error code, (800F081F).

A while ago I built my own computer, and it worked fine for about two weeks. However, since then, it has had many errors and problems with programs. After wiping my drive and reinstalling countless times, I've kind of been able to get it to work (I'm using the computer to write this), but I can't do any Windows Updates (it gives me error C80003FA) and Microsoft Security Essentials has gone crazy (can't update, won't scan), so I'm running it without any antivirus. I tried running MalwareBytes, but when I tried to download it, it wouldn't install and told me that the download was corrupted.

I've searched for solutions to the Windows Update Error, and many people suggested restarting the Windows Update service, renaming the folders, etc, and none of it has worked. When I try to update Microsoft Security Essentials, weird things happen. The progress bar goes to the end, but before it's about to finish, it goes back to the beginning and starts again. Then, just before it finishes, it stops and says that it failed to connect and can't update. Also, when I try to refresh the Windows Experience Index, it errors in the middle of the assessment and closes.

I don't know what could be causing these problems, my best guess is some sort of virus, but that doesn't make sense either as I've wiped the drive multiple times and flashed the BIOS as well (just in case it was something in the BIOS). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The last Windows Update I was able to successfully download was on March 16.  Since then, it fails almost immediately with an error code of 8024402C.  Underneath that it says that the last update date was Never.  I tried just running one tiny 300KB update with the same results.
At that time I tried to scan my Dell e6410 with Microsoft Security Essentials, but it wouldn't update either.  I finally was able to manually download updates. 
Neither MSE nor MalwareBytes can find anything wrong.
Chkdsk completed normally.
System File Checker completed OK.
The links to GMER from this forum wouldn't load the page.
The C:\ drive is only 1% fragmented, which in my mind doesn't justify the risk of running a defrag.
And this is the weirdest part:  When I attempt to restart the Windows Defender service, it stops itself.

Since mid February, all of my Windows update patches have continually failed with and error code of 80070308. I have never had an issue with any Windows Updates prior to mid February. I am running Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit. I have a newer Dell XPS8500 machine with 32 GB RAM and an Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.4 GHZ. The following updates continually fail:

All Windows automatic updates have been failing since 2015-11-12. The last successful update was the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - November 2015 (KB890830) on 11/12/2015 03:17. The first failed update since then was Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3100213) on 11/13/2015 20:25.

Manual installation of the pending updates does not work. Reboot does not install the pending updates either. Another symptom was that Windows was no longer detecting my third party Anti-Virus software. I removed and reinstalled the software thinking it might be related and Windows started detecting the Anti-Virus software again but I can no longer access the computers from other computers on my home network. For now let's focus on the Windows problem which may be hardware failure induced--hardware crash/power cycle without a Shutdown.

System details are as follows:Dell XPS 420 Desktop
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, SP1
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.4 GHz
8 GB of memory
nVidia GeForce 8800 GT
Generic Sound (on motherboard)
Intel RAID 1 volume with two Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003-9YN162 1 TB SATA Hard Drives

McAfee Internet Security Suite

Due to problems with interrupted updates and my graphics driver I had to re-install Windows 7 Ultimate x86 (dating from 2010).
Unfortunately, Windows can not perform updates anymore: it immediately issues an error code 800B0100.
After running several tools from Microsoft the problem still exists.
So now I turn to the real experts and hope you guys can help me.
I have run the tooling suggested on your forum and attached the CBS files.
Now I hope you can help me.

My machine hasn't been able to update for a few weeks. Windows Update opens, but attempting to download "Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2585542)" fails with error code 80073712. There was a second update of the same sort that was also not working before; I eventually managed to get that update to complete by running Fixit in aggressive mode. Nothing I've done has helped with the remaining failure, though.

Let me know what other information I should provide. Thanks in advance.

Hello experts,

I have ASUS Essentio mini-pc with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 installed.
I did run virus checker, spy checker, several registry cleaners.
I spent a week on it , as well Microsoft support logged in for an hour.
I did run the batch file re-registering DLL's.
The original error 80070424 is gone since I run the "ErrorFix" utility.

My recovery CD form the manufacturer is only to wipe out all what I have installed and reload the "vanilla" system. Windows repair option is not available.
This is for me out of question, to many programs are installed on my system.

Here is the problem I think:
Windows installer is missing,
Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable installation fails. error code 1603
"Windows update" does not work, error code: 80040154

1. Is there any way to restore the Windows Installer files ?
2. Upgrading to Windows Vista Ultimate version will fix the missing files ?

Any other suggestions?

I've recently been getting failures for windows updates, specifically the quality and security rollups on Windows 7 (e.g. KB4284826). The error code reported is always 8024200D.

I've looked this up and found one or two related posts, including:
I've been through several of the steps mentioned on these and other forums, including:

I did receive 3 updates yesterday but Belarc Advisor states I'm short of 11 critical updates.
I believe it as I just installed Office and no updates are being offered.
Maybe the servers are down.
I hope using Timernuke to get around the activation issue hasn't caused this.

This happened to me too while I had some installations running on the background.

I guess it's either this, or at the same time windows automatic update was running, and it just fails to notify you of that.

After all my installations were finished, or after a restart, I don't remember, the Windows Update worked fine.

For 2 weeks now, I have been completely unable to get Windows Update to run properly on my Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate x64 computer. I have no idea what I did to cause this and I've done some limited troubleshooting to no avail. I would really appreciate any assistance you could offer.
Per the instructions, I have completed the following:

1) I ran the latest version of SURT for my OS.
2) I attempted to run SFC, When sfc /scannow is run from the elevated command prompt, I get the following error:
"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation."

When I attempt to run sfc /scannow from the recovery command prompt, I get this error:
"There is a system repair pending which requires a reboot". Please note that I do not have a reboot.xml or a pending.xml file in my Windows\winsxs folder.
3) When I attempt to run Windows Update, I consistently get the following error code: 8007370B. Not sure if this helps or not, but when I run the updater, I usually get the TrustedInstaller.exe process running and consuming approximately 13% CPU. Sometimes the error appears within seconds, and sometimes it takes 1 hour of Windows searching for an update before that error code will appear.
4) I have uploaded my log files here: https://app.box.com/shared/static/t1...z5kai23dh5.zip
If there is any further information required, please let me know. I would like to thank you in advance for your assistance!

I receive a similar error again on our HP Pavilion Notebooks with AMD CPU when updating to Windows 10 Creator update as last time when updating to Windows 10. Our office has a few of the 17-G133cl notebook computers and all of them display the same error message: We couldn't install Windows 10 - 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 - The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation. Which is similar to the error displayed during the initial Windows 10 update except that the error shown was 0x1900101 - 0x20000. Back then a BIOS update that became available that fixed the issue. We check for a new BIOS, but all notebooks have the latest BIOS already installed v. F.41 from 9/19/2016. All other systems including other none HP AMD computers upgraded just fine. Any ideas what could cause this issue with that type of system?

Installation date: ‎09/‎05/‎2013 10:22 AM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 9C59
Update type: Optional"

I have attached the CBS.zip file. (NB: when I pasted the copy of CBS folder to my desktop I got an error message that access to CBS.log was denied. Maybe this is normal?)

I'd be most grateful for any help you can give.



A:Windows update fails for IE10 on Win7 error code 9C59

the copy/paste problem is common - which is one reason why I tend to prefer just collecting the CBS.log file on its own.
Copy the C:\Windows\logs\CBS\CBS.log file to your desktop, and compress it, then upload that.

Hi there,

I'm having an issue with a laptop running Windows 7 Home x64 SP1. It has failed to install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 and keeps trying every time I try to run updates.

I've downloaded the installer and tried to run it manually, but that gives me the error 0x80070002

I've attached my CBS log from the last time I attempted the install. Any help will be much appreciated!

The v320 update installer isn't commonly available (unless you know where to look) - where did you attempt to download it from?

Windows update for IE10 on Windows 7 64bit fails continuously with error code 9c59. I tried the stand alone updater with the same results. All other windows updates complete successfully, it's just IE10 that continually fails.

Don't know if this is related but I do have problems with IE8 (current browser). After a while, an open IE window will become non responsive and can't be closed out. I have to use task manager to close it down. I have sent off the reports to MS, but no solution has appeared.

I've attached the cbs file. Let me know what else I can do. Thanks.

A:Windows update for IE10 on win7 64bit fails with error code 9c59

There are no significant file errors in either SFC or CheckSUR logs.

In these cases, it has sometimes been a solution to uninstall IE9, reboot a couple of times, and then reinstall IE9 again, before installing IE10 successfully.
It's worth a try

Windows Update doesn't seem to be working for me, it's giving me an "unknown error" with the code above. I have tried Tweaking.com's Windows Repair Tool, but the same problem still arises. I'd be grateful for any help.

We're planning to push BIOS updates to all our systems in the near future. However, in testing we've noticed that some systems will fail installation with error code 211. The problem seems to be related to a changed BIOS logo, since when ran manually, the updater asks if it should overwrite the existing logo or keep it. This seems to cause problems when you run the BIOS update executable "winuptp64.exe" with the "-s" (silent) argument.Is there a solution to this, like an argument that forces overwriting of logo or keep existing? Full error log:[2018/1/24 11:40:47] version 25.26

It fails if I try and update IE11 from microsoft.com directly or do it through windows update.

This is a new build, with a fresh install of win7, the current IE is 8.

Any ideas!?

EDIT: I feel I should mention that I don't want to actually use IE11, it's just that windows update keeps automatically trying to install it and fails, every single day, time and time again.

I should also add that I have done both the SURT and SFC scan.

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3033929)

I can't find any info on this error.  Tried the update twice and both times it failed.

A:Update KB3033929 fails with error code 80004005

You may want to try the following:
1) Running the following FIX-it (for resolving WUS issues)
  LINK:  ~http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058 

2) Then change windows update to "manual" update mode (as aposed to install updates automatically)
3) Scan for updates
4) Uncheck and then "hide" KB KB3033929
The update should no longer download or install going forward. 
You can then revert the WUS to ?automatic? if you desire (recommended). 
Perhaps MS will FIX and re-release this in the future. 
At that point you could choose to ?unhide? the patch and then 
try to reinstall it at that time.

Hi zatoichi,

As you've correctly isolated, Windows in your system has failed to install an update on numerous occasions:

2013-02-28 17:06:12, Info CBS Failed to get session package state for package: Package_3_for_KB2564958~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~ [HRESULT = 0x80070490 - ERROR_NOT_FOUND]
Though unlikely, you may still try resetting the 'Windows Components' to see if that helps: How do I reset Windows Update components?

If the issue persists, please try a manual install: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...ng=en&id=27653

You may also refer to the following 'Microsoft Article' that recommends 'Windows Repair' in this case, if 'System Update Readiness Tool' fails to fix it: Windows Update error 80070490

Hope this helps.

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Hey all,

So I am currently reinstalling Windows on my dad's old laptop after the hard drive decided up die on us, and I stumbled on a problem that's a bit too hard for me to fix.

Namely, I am completely unable to install any Windows Update. Not even MSE will install.

I tried running SURT, but got error code 0x8000247
I also tried running SFC /SCANNOW, it ran the verification fase until 98% and then stated that there where unfixable problems.

The displayed error codes are:
In WU: "8024A000"
In SURT: "0x8000247"
Whilst installing MSE: "0x80070643".

Attached you will find CBS.log and MSINFO with my system specs.
Cheers and many thanks in advance,

CBS.log MSINFO32.nfo

That's very reminiscent of similar errors in Win7 - and I wouldn't be surprised to see it being non-genuine.
Please post an MGADiag report BEFORE doing the below potential fixes.

This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Storage Matrix Technology drivers -

Installing the Intel Drivers
try downloading and installing them from here -


Once complete, please reboot twice, then post another MGADiag report.

If nothing has changed, try this...

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt


once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, and run another MGADiag report and post the results.

If neither of them work, we'll re-evaluate.

installed windows 7 sp1 from dell restore cd onto dell laptop.
have all drivers installed.
have reinstalled from restore cd 3 times now, I continue to get error code 8024402C when trying to do windows update. I have tried leaving it on fully automatic update, the no updates do manually setting, and everything in between.
IE11 and firefox get on the web with no problem, the only other software installed is security essentials and this failed update happens before installation of that. I am positive no software installed afterwards is causing this problem, as i have done re-installation of windows 3 times now including blanking the hard drive.
this last time i have manually downloaded and installed IE11 and .net 4.5.
I try the microsoft windows automated update troubleshooter which downloads windowsupdatediagnostic.diagcab. It reports:

1) windows update error 0x8024402c(2015-03-22-T-01_36_33P) - not fixed.
2) service registration is missing or corrupt - fixed.
3) problems installing recent updates - fixed.
4) problems installing recent updates - fixed.

I go into the detailed report for the above, it shows everything fixed in green including the (1) that says not fixed, and doesn't allow me to do anything else.
the other microsoft troubleshooters i've ran all say no problems detected.
what do i do from here?
the few other things i've found online i've checked, settings are already that such as internet options lan settings automatically detect.
