XP SP3 with error code 0x8007043C

Postby guest » Sat Jun 07, 2008 9:00 pm

After installing Windows XP SP3, no updates can be downloaded and
installed successfully via Windows Update. The error code 0x8007043C was
received now. However, we can manually download and install the updates.

At this point, we cannot conclude this issue is caused by XP SP3. I have
also installed SP3 on my Windows XP Test machine without problems. The
issue may be caused by several factors, such as corrupted system DLL files,
a corrupted Windows Update temporary folder, or stopped update services. In
order to narrow down the cause of this issue and resolve it, let's refer to
the following steps. Please access the Windows Update website to check the
result after completing each step.

NOTE: Some third party programs can also affect the Windows Update service.
If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker,
Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the
Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee,
etc.), I recommend we temporarily disable or shut them down and then try
accessing the Windows Update site later. Please be sure to enable them
again after completing the update process.

Step 1: Register DLL files
By trying this step, we can check the update engines.

1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.
2. Click "Start" and "Run", type "REGSVR32 ATL.DLL" (without quotes) in the
open box and click "OK".

Note: There is a space between REGSVR32 and ATL.DLL

3. Register the files listed below:


Note: Please register all the files. While registering each .DLL file you
should get a "succeeded" message. If you encounter any error message,
please let me know the exact wording.

If the issue persists, let's move on to the steps below to verify Windows
Update services and temporary folders.

Step 2: Verify the relevant Windows Update services
1. Click "Start"->"Run", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in
the open box and click "OK".
2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".
3. Click on the "General" tab; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic".
Then please click "Stop" under "Service Status" to stop the service.
4. Click "Start" under "Service Status" to start the service.
5. Please repeat the above steps with another service: Background
Intelligent Transfer Service.

If it still does not resolve the issue, let's proceed to step 3.

Step 3: Reload the Windows Update temporary folder
One possible cause is that the temporary folder for Windows Update contains
corrupted files. Let's erase all the files to clean the system.

1. Click "Start", "Run", type: cmd and press "Enter". Please run the
following command in the open window.
Net stop WuAuServ
2. Click "Start", "Run", type: %windir% and press "Enter".
3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.
4. Click "Start", "Run", type: cmd and press "Enter". Please run the
following command in the open window.
Net start WuAuServ
