Microsoft downloads will not install
I have tried repeatedly to install the latest updates from Microsoft, but the y will not install and I get Error messages - 80073712 & 52F. What is blocking these updates?

Re: Microsoft downloads will not install
The issue is that the WUA 3.0 (7.0.6000.374) upgrade is corrupted,essentially the system reports the WUA to be 7.0.6000.374 but the files on the disk are still from the old version (you can check some of the DLLs like wups.dll, wuaueng.dll etc… in the windows\system32) … and you cannot install the WUA 3.0 even manually.you have to run a command prompt with “Run as Administrator”.
Type in the following commands
takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml
cacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G <YourUsername>:F
then delete the file and Reboot the machine
Reinstall the Windows Update Agent
Windows, x86-based systems download
Windows, x64-based systems download
save to the desktop, and run from an elevated command prompt, adding /wuforce to the end of the command
