I received an update notification in my windows update window. I accepted the suggested update and said install update. I have tried unsuccessfully installing the update via the windows update option, it always gets stuck at 11% and says that the installation failed due to an error 80073712. I tried installing it via a standalone installer too. It gives me an error that the update wasn't installed. I followed some links on the windows forum and tried everything that they had suggested, even contacted the windows help center , gave them remote access to my machine and asked them to solve the problem. Still nothing. There is a troubleshooter that gives me the Root cause was RC_DataStore. I have seen suggestions to reinstall windows 7, but I cannot since there is a lot of stuff I need right away that I won't be able to reinstall easily.
If I am not wrong the updates are a part of the patches to prevent the recent malware attacks. Any help will be appriciated
