After performing what I thought would be a routine Windows update last
night, I found that none of the patches the update service said it had
installed were actually completed.
Update history showed the same code for each failure -
Error code: 80070003
I went into the Help files and followed these instructions:
Disable the Windows Update Service, which I did,
DEL *.* in the following dirs:
/Windows/ SoftwareDistribution/DataStore &
/Windows/SoftwareDistribution/Download, which I also did.
I restarted the Update Service, rebooted and tried, and tried, and tried
again, but alas: Error Code: 80070003.
Any ideas, suggestions, good hammers?
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most!
