Getting this error while checking for updates in Edge browser stable version.


An error occurred while checking for updates: We couldn't create that component (error code 3: 0x80004002 -- system level).

@nix1507 Thanks for reporting this and welcome to the Microsoft Edge Insider community! I looped in our feature team to see if they can help troubleshoot.


(And I hope you're liking the new WW84 theme extension! I have it on my browser too.)

@nix1507 To follow-up, I heard back from the team! First, they requested that you submit diagnostic data through our secure in-browser feedback tool, if you haven't yet. (Shift+Alt+I on a PC or "..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback.)


And second, the fix should be easy! They're recommending that you simply reinstall Microsoft Edge (no need to uninstall firs.)

  1. Exit all browser sessions
  2. Go to from a non-Edge browser 
  3. Download Microsoft Edge, run the installer


Hopefully that helps, and let us know if you have any additional questions!
