    Windows Error 0x80070003 Support


    Hey, everyone! This is my first post here, so excuse me if it's quality is lacking, as I do not know what information to provide.

    Windows Update will not update my drivers for my Nvidia GTX 980. So I went around on forums and eventually did sfc /scannow in administrative cmd. This is what it told me. Click image for larger version

    Okay so after I did that, I proceeded to type in, Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.This is what the result looked like.

    So my question is, how do I find 'Source Files' like it's telling me? If that's not the issue, then my next question is, how do I make Windows Update work without giving me the 0x80070003 Error? Cheers!

    The funny thing is, I've never once ever seen Myself, or had to ever specify a source for windows to fix itself..

    I've had viruses and definitely tweaked settings I should not.. but never had that..

    Now I've seen others have this a few times now.. and I'm wondering what torrents and what downloads and probably malware/things these people are doing to ruin your "source" or have that error... but in anycase...

    Read through this and see if the "source" problem can be resolved.. via this genius's tool..

    Steps 1 & 2 worked flawlessly, however, this is what step 3 said. Click image for larger version

    Yeah you didn't want to talk about how this happened ha..

    I think there is like 9 pages of info on that link I gave you, I don't remember but I think they talk about how to use the source..

    But like I've said, I never had to use the "source" .. so It's interesting to think what you did to change that..
