Quick solution to fix various PC errors
- Step 1: Download PC Scan & Repair by Reimage
- Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows issues that could be causing error 0x803f7000
- Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.
1. Incorrect Region
Windows applications and services connect and deliver content from the nearest possible location in order to achieve higher response speeds. If you’re getting error code 0x803f7000 you might have the wrong region set. To check if this is the case open the Settings window from the Start menu and select Time & language. Now head over to the Region & language section and confirm that the Country or region option is set correctly. If not, make the appropriate changes and reboot your computer.
2. Incorrect date and time
Connections between your computer and online services like the Windows Store are done using SSL certificates. These encrypt the transferred data and protect your privacy from man in the middle attacks. These certificates are valid only between certain dates and if your date and time are incorrectly set the Windows Store will refuse the connection.
To fix this open the Settings window from the Start menu and select Time & language. Open the Date & time section and make sure that the time zone, the date and the time are set correctly.
3. Clear the Windows Store cache
Online applications store static information on your machine, called cache, which is used to speed up browsing. When the information on the server changes your cache should update automatically but sometimes you have to manually reset it.
To reset the Windows Store cache press the Windows + R keys or search for Run. This will bring up the Run window. Here you’ll have to type Wsreset.exe and press the Enter key or the OK button.
Running this executable will reset your Windows Store to its default settings and open it once the process finishes.
4. The servers are overloaded
Sometimes the servers used by the Windows Store can get overloaded if they are accessed by too many users and this can give an error code 0x803f7000. In this situation wait for a couple of minutes and then try again to download the desired applications.
5. Run the Modern UI App Troubleshooter
Microsoft provides a troubleshooter application for automatically fixing problems with modern Windows apps. You can download the troubleshooter directly from http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/2/4/F24D0C03-4181-4E5B-A23B-5C3A6B5974E3/apps.diagcab and then run it just like any other application.
The troubleshooter will attempt to automatically identifiy problems and fix them for you. After running the troubleshooter it is recommended to reboot your machine before accessing the Windows Store.
6. Windows isn’t activated
The Windows Store will fail to work if your copy of Windows isn’t activated. This can be caused by various activation errors or if you’re using a copy of Windows that isn’t genuine.
To check the activation status on Windows 10 open the Settings window from the Start menu and access the Update & security section. Select the Activation tab from the left side menu and check the status. If Windows isn’t activated follow the instructions to do so.
