Hey,

Everytime I try to DL and install updates, it shows me an error code: 800703F9.
Did some research on my own, but everything I tried didn't work.
How can I fix this?

Thanks. :)

First I would run SFC to check for system file problems.

Go to Elevated Command Prompt type in SFC /scannow

When you get any restults let us know back on the forums.

It has happened more often, so that wouldn't work.

Tried that too, but I'm always getting the "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation" error.
Even in safe mode.

I already told you. ^^
"windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation"

I got support from Microsoft, and their fix works for windows update. (So far at least. It's downloading updates now, but before, it would just give me an error right away)
