For some, the GeForce Experience not working error started when they do their Windows 10 upgrades.

Experience error code 0x0003 – Fix 3
One cause of the GeForce Experience not working issue is the telemetry container. If for any reason, the telemetry container isn’t working or starting up (this is sometimes the case when Microsoft messes with its bugdate), the GeForce Experience might stop working fine.
To fix this.
- Open the Telemetry container settings and switch the log to use a local admin account. Try starting the GeForce again, and things should be fine.
You should turn off the Windows defender real-time protection and see if the error disappears. We have found out that the Windows defender can get idiotic at times and try to stop legitimate use of some of the features, or even installing legitimate software. This fixed the error for some of those with the error, so it wouldn’t hurt to give it a trial.
We also discovered that many antivirus software can cause the Error Code 0x0003 on the GeForce Experience. So turn off your antivirus and then trying running GeForce. It should work now. If it doesn’t, try running as Administrator.
