    Question

  • On many Windows 7 workstations in the windowsupdate.log file I see this over and over.

    2013-08-21 10:50:05:106 988 714 DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3

    I've Googled this but I have not found a solution that works for us.  What are the top reasons that cause this?

  • The error code 0xC80003F3 means hrOutOfMemory: The computer is out of memory

    Either your machine is out of memory or some app may be leaking mem or you might have set pagefile to be too small. 

    I'm sure you might have tried already, but if not try rebooting, try starting the machine with no 3rd party startup apps.
