The 0x00000017 or CID_HANDLE_DELETION error is a rare occurrence typically associated with an issue during the deletion of a Client ID (CID) handle. This could be caused by a variety of factors such as incorrect system settings, low-level software problems, or faulty hardware.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: It’s important to regularly update your operating system and drivers, as this can help to fix bugs and enhance system stability.
  2. Debug Your Software: If you’re a developer and the error occurred within your software, debugging your code to identify potential issues could be beneficial. Look for any anomalies during the deletion of CID handles.
  3. Check Your Hardware: Hardware issues, especially with memory (RAM), can cause such errors. Running hardware diagnostics, like a memory check, might help identify if a hardware issue is the root cause.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): The System File Checker tool can find and fix potential issues with your system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the error has started appearing recently, you may be able to resolve it by restoring your system to a previous state when everything was working correctly.
  6. Perform a Clean Installation: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, you might need to perform a clean installation of Windows. This should be a last resort, as it will erase all data on your system drive.

Remember to back up all important data before making significant changes to your system to avoid potential data loss. If you’re unable to resolve the issue yourself, consider seeking help from a professional or from Microsoft Support.
