Error 0x8007043c


  • i cant seem to get past this update error.  Im running windows xp and when my system rebooted due to an error that flashed quickly, i came back up and tried to run windows defender.  when that didnt correct the problem, i went into safe mode and tried to run defender again, or tried to, and got error 0x8007043c which is described as a safeboot service error.  i then tried to run microsofts mrfix it and was given an error saying windows update components need to be repaired and not much help after that.  im not sure how to recover frm this error and any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Well the error you are getting in Safe mode is that the Windows Update agent cannot be started i Safe Mode.

    Do you get this error during OS Deployment or do you get it after running windows update?
