    This problem might have caused due to the anti-virus you have installed or the host files might contains some incorrect informations
    In order to overcome this error follw these steps :
    #1.Disable the internet security ,system care,or any other third party softwares such as Ad removal programs(i.e. AdBlock),Web accelerators,Download assistance ,security software
    #2.Try to connect to the windows update site go to the microsoft update website
    #3.If this still don't work ....DELETE the host file which you can find in the following directory
    C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc
    OR you can install a new scripting engine

    Hi, Dear friend

    Usually the Error 403 is about the server( windows update website ) side Error

    Whenever we send the Request to the server...... then immediately the server should respond about the Request.......But instead of giving error means then there is a problem within the server only ....means it is being Configured to deny access (( is under maintenance)) for some reason to the requested resource by the Client

    And to get the solution for this..... try to access the same site after some time.... or ... try to Visit another website ...

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
