RE: Error = 0xc80003F3
I have this problem too.

I'm running Windows Vista (Home Premium) on a HP Pavilion DV6700 Notebook
with 3GB RAM etc. When I click "Check for Updates" in Windows Update I get
the following error:

"Windows could not search for new updates"
"Error(s) found: C80003F3"

So now I cannot update my system. Can anyone suggest how to fix this problem?

(Come on Microsoft! The first post in this thread is 2 years old!)

<cmd_output OS="XPsp2">
E:\>set /a c = 0x3F3
1011
E:\>net helpmsg %c%

The configuration registry key could not be opened.
</cmd_output>

So, why choose the oldest one to comment in?
There are others which refer to exactly the same hex string
which are later than that--some which have even been marked
"Helpful" (FWIW).


Good luck
