:( Hi and Happy Holidays

This has to do with a windows update that wouldn't install and keeps giving me an error code(800FO203)
The update is for Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. No matter what I do it wouldn't install.(disabled firewall,antivirus,contacted Realtek).If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated.Thanks

Step 1: Verify the relevant Windows Update services
=======================================

  • Click on Start, type services.msc in the open box and click OK.
  • Double click the service Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
  • Click on the General tab; make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic. Then please click the Start button under Service Status to start the service.
  • Please repeat the above steps with another service: Windows Update

NOTE: If one of the two services is missing, please let me know.

Step 2: Rename the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder
=================================================
One possible cause is that Windows Update's temporary folder contains corrupted files. This step will remove the Download folder, which contains the update installation files. After renaming this folder a new one will automatically be created. This will have no negative effect on your computer's performance.


  • Click Start and type cmd in the Search box then right click on cmd in the pop up and select Run as Administrator. This will open the Command Prompt window, at the Command Prompt, type net stop wuauserv and press Enter (Leave the Command Prompt open).
  • Click Start and type %windir% in the Search box and press Enter.
  • Double-click the SoftwareDistribution folder.
  • In the opened folder, rename the folder Download to Download.old.
  • Go back to the Command Prompt and type net start WuAuServ and press Enter.
  • Close all the open windows and see if the update problem is resolved.

NOTE: After resolving this Windows Update issue, please feel free to delete the Download.old folder.

If that fails, click on Start and type:

%windir%\WindowsUpdate.log

in the search box & press Enter, Copy & Paste the last 100-150 lines in your next reply.

There is no obvious sign of a problem in the log, but it shows the update is scheduled to install at 8.00 today and the log only goes up to 2.25 so it won't have tried to install it until later.

Please wait until after 8.00 and check if all is well. If the problem is still apparent create another update log and post the last 40 lines of it.

What time zone are you in?

Ok, the installation of the update will have now happened, please create a fresh log from Windows Update following the instructions at the end of post 2 and post the last 40 or so entries.

Another option is to not allow Windows Update to update your hardware drivers. I disabled this after finding sometimes Windows Update would break my graphics or sound adapters which were working just fine before.

It can be seen clearly in that log the update is failing to install, but there is no reason given so probably best to follow what Frank4d suggested. Then try a manual update of the driver as there was an update released quite recently.

1. Go to Windows update.
2. Click View available updates.
3. Right-click on the update you wish to hide.
4. Click Hide Update.

That will stop Windows Update from trying to install the driver so you should not get any more problems with that.

Then go Here
Scroll down the first section and click on any of the download links next to Win7 and WinServer 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program, save it to your desktop, extract the contents of the zip file and then double click on it to run it.
