Error code 0x80070643 Windows Defender

I am getting an error code 0x80070643 while doing a Win 10 update on Windows Defender. I have no idea how it happened as everything worked fine so far. Does anyone have a similar issue?

Hi @AndrewF,

Unfortunately, update issues can occur and speaking of issues these are some of the common problems that users reported:

  • Windows Defender update failed – If Windows Defender update fails, the issue might be a third-party antivirus tool. If your previous antivirus isn’t completely removed, sometimes leftover files can interfere with Windows Defender and cause this issue to appear. To fix it, simply remove any leftover files and the issue should be fixed.

  • Windows Defender update stuck – Sometimes your Windows Defender can get stuck during the update process. If this happens, be sure to repair your system files using both SFC and DISM scans.

  • Windows Defender update connection failed – If you get this error message while trying to update Windows Defender, your third-party firewall might be an issue, so be sure to disable it or uninstall it.

  • Windows Defender update won’t install – If Windows Defender update won’t install, the issue might be a problematic application. However, you can fix the issue simply by performing a Clean boot.

  • Windows Defender not getting updated – Several users claim that this issue can be caused by Windows Update components, so try resetting them and check if that solves the problem.
