    I recently started encountering a '0x800703E3' error after trying to install
    new update software from the Microsoft Update site. I have re-registered the
    dll's and wiped the Software Distribution folder. I am unsure how to correct
    this problem.

    Downloading: 100%
    Copying: 100%
    Immediately after copying: "The website has encountered a problem and cannot
    display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might
    help you solve the problem. " [Error number: 0x800703E3]

  2. Ensure that you have disabled all third-party anti-virus, anti-malware, or
    download accelerators, then try the upgrade again.

    If the condition persists, download Dial-a-fix from and use its repair options for
    Windows Update, Crypto Services, and re-register Internet Explorer etc.

    You can manually download and install the Microsoft Update software at:

    I had already manually re-registered the crypto/bits/wu files as well as
    completely disabled my antivirus software. I am still encountering the error
    and am unsure on what to do now.
