What is the cause of error 0x80073d0a Windows Store?

We investigated this particular problem by looking at various user reports. We then tested dozens of repair strategies recommended by other users to see what repair strategies worked best for the problem.

It turns out that several different scenarios could lead to error 0x80073d0a. Here is a shortlist of possible culprits that may be responsible for this problem:

Windows Firewall disabled: One of the most common causes of this error is that the built-in firewall is disabled. The Windows Store must check the connection between itself and Microsoft’s servers. If a critical security feature, such as an active firewall, is missing, you will see this particular error code accordingly. If this scenario applies, you can resolve the problem by reactivating the built-in firewall from the services screen.

Third-party AV interference: The Windows Store may not be able to communicate between the UWP Store and Microsoft Stores if you use certain third-party firewall equivalents. In this case, you should be able to fix the problem either by adding the Widows Store to your firewall exclusion list or by removing the third-party security component completely.

Corrupted Windows Store cache: It turns out that this problem can also be caused by some form of Windows Store cache corruption. One or more of the temporary files that the store relies on may have been corrupted. In this case, the most effective solution is to reset the entire Windows Store cache (either with a CMD prompt or via the Windows GUI).

Damaged system files: In rare cases, this problem may be caused by corrupted system files that cannot be resolved in the traditional way. If this scenario applies, you may be able to solve the problem by using the System Restore utility to return your computer to a healthy state, or by updating all operating system components (via a repair shop or clean installation).
