    Generic Roaming error ID3


    Someone wrote here that Windows updates are increasingly behaving like viruses. I won't go that far BUT recently each update brings a host of errors to an otherwise well functioning computer (16mb ram; i7 4930k; win 10 professional with all updates).

    The latest is the Generic Roaming Error ID3.

    Here is the header from the error message:

    "There was an error while applying setting unit 7375A7CC00C60758CC303261DF9E1A852E993C7D for roaming collection Windows-Credentials. The parameter is incorrect."

    I don't have a clue what this is about.

    Does anyone??

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. Unless there is a simpler fix, which will allow me to keep my system untouched (because it is stable despite this and other errors), I'll wait for the next couple of updates to see what happens.

    My last serial update attack (Event ID 2 (session Microsoft.Windows.Remediation not started) was resolved with updates and no action on my part.

    Fingers crossed.

    not the last word


    The simplest suggestion was to turn off syncing among machines to kill the error, which I did in upstate New York (Windows Settings, Accounts, Sync Your Settings) on my computer there.

    Came back to Brooklyn late morning and did the same (turn off syncing) to an identical machine (same hardware, same build from image).

    The Brooklyn machine then proceeded to update itself to the October 1709 even though that was already on the computer. Afterwards it did other updates.

    Can't figure out what is wrong (if something is wrong). Why did Windows Update the machine that already has the updates.

    Strange, strange.

    Any hypotheses welcome. Thanks.

    Windows OS should not install same updates twice maybe update you mentioned failed to install first time.
