  • Hi,


    For your issue, try the following method and check if it helps:

    Remove SID's for users that no longer exist in the registry.

    Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    And you can check which users don't exist by checking computer management/local users and groups/users.

    Note: when you try the method, please remember to backup your registry and data.


    Besides, here is the link about how to fix the error 0x80070003, you could refer to the link and have a try:
