Have you tried this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Windows-Update-error-80073712?

Go to the Knowledge Based Article and arrow down to select your specific operating system download.

Good luck.

Try a system restore for a few weeks ago. then try it again. it may be some update you have installed. I really can't install those either but im not patient enough for a system restore ( 5 hours.... ) Best a luck mate
