How do I fix Windows virus error 0x800700E1?

  1. Run a Full System Scan: Use a reliable antivirus or antimalware software to perform a full system scan. Make sure your antivirus software is up to date and capable of detecting and removing the latest threats. If the scan detects any malicious software, follow the prompts to remove it.

  2. Use Windows Defender: Windows comes with a built-in antivirus called Windows Defender. Run a full scan using Windows Defender to check for malware and viruses. Here's how:

    • Type "Windows Security" in the Windows search bar and open the app.
    • Go to "Virus & threat protection."
    • Click on "Quick scan" or "Full scan" depending on your preference.
  3. Update Windows: Ensure that your Windows operating system is up to date with the latest updates and patches. Sometimes, Microsoft releases updates that address security vulnerabilities and fix issues.

  4. Check for System File Corruption: Run the System File Checker (SFC) tool to check for and repair corrupted system files. Here's how:

    • Open Command Prompt as an administrator.
    • Type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
    • Let the scan complete, and it will attempt to repair any corrupted system files.
  5. Use Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool: Windows also provides a Malicious Software Removal Tool that can help detect and remove specific malware. You can run it through Windows Update or manually download it from Microsoft's website.

  6. Check for Recent Changes: If the error started occurring after you installed new software or made changes to your system settings, consider uninstalling or reverting those changes to see if the error goes away.

  7. Perform a System Restore: If you have a restore point created before the error starts occurring, you can perform a system restore to revert your system to a state where the error didn't exist.

  8. Use Safe Mode: Boot your computer into Safe Mode and then perform a full scan with your antivirus software. Safe Mode can prevent certain types of malware from running and can make it easier to remove them.

  9. Reset Windows: If all else fails, you might consider resetting Windows to its default settings. This can help resolve issues caused by persistent malware or corrupted system files.
