How to fix Windows 7 error 0x80041003?

Some Windows 7 users may occasionally encounter a 0x80041003 error. Its forerunner, for example, may be the hang of a PC, from which you can get rid of only by rebooting. In the Event Viewer, you can find the following information by mistake:

Event filter with query “SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA “Win32_Processor” AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99″ could not be reactivated in namespace “//./root/CIMV2” because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected

In today’s article, we’ll look at two methods that – according to many users – can resolve the error 0x80041003 in Windows 7. The first method is to use the VBS script, and the second is to use a tool developed by Microsoft itself.

Fixing error 0x80041003


Method # 1 Running the VBS script

  • Create a simple text document on your desktop;
  • open the document and paste the following script into it:

strComputer = «.»
Set objWMIService = GetObject(«winmgmts:» _
& «{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\» _
& strComputer & «\root\subscription»)Set obj1 = objWMIService.Get(«__EventFilter.Name=’BVTFilter’»)

set obj2set = obj1.Associators_(«__FilterToConsumerBinding»)

set obj3set = obj1.References_(«__FilterToConsumerBinding»)

For each obj2 in obj2set
WScript.echo «Deleting the object»
WScript.echo obj2.GetObjectText_

For each obj3 in obj3set
WScript.echo «Deleting the object»
WScript.echo obj3.GetObjectText_

WScript.echo «Deleting the object»
WScript.echo obj1.GetObjectText_

  • rename this document to fixeventid10 and replace its extension with .VBS – you should get the fixeventid10.vbs file;
  • double-click on this file to start it;

In the Windows 7 Event Viewer, delete all the logs of event 10 that are related to error 0x80041003 so that they do not interfere with you in the future.

Method # 2 Running Fix It from Microsoft

  • Download the Fix It tool from the official Microsoft website;
  • run it and follow the instructions on your screen;
  • test the system and check if the error 0x80041003 was fixed.

We hope that this material helped you to get rid of the error 0x80041003, and you continued to quietly use Windows 7.
