Q. You receive a 0x80245003 error when you attempt to install updates from the Windows Update Web site?

When you attempt to install updates using the Windows Update Web site, you receive an error similar to:

Error number:0x80245003. Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested page.

This behavior occurs because the redirector identification number of the downloaded Wuredir.cab file is lower than the redirector identification number of the %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Wuredir.cab file.

To workaround this issue:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type net stop wuauserv and press Enter.

3. Type rmdir /s /q %windir%\softwaredistribution\wuredir and press Enter.

4. Type net start wuauserv and press Enter.

Try using the Windows Update Web site to install updates.
