About 2 days ago I started having problems with my automatic updates. When trying to install them, I keep getting two problems found.

 

Windows Update environment variables are incorrect                                Not Fixed

Windows Update error 0x80073712(2016-04-18-T-04_50_50P)                Not Fixed

 

 

These are the latest two that keep coming up.

 

Any suggestions on how to clear these?

 

Thanks

Mike

I fallowed the steps on the link and after everything was done, I still end up with 80073712 error.. When I get the error I've tried tried clicking on the link to get help with this error and I keep getting this, "If the System Update Readiness Tool does not correct the problem, you'll need to repair Windows" but then it skips how windows needs to be repaired.

Go to Window Update site.  Click on the button to Change Settings.  Under Important Updates, elect the Never Check option, do not put check marks in any of the other options, click OK..

 

Reboot.

 

Install KB3145739 .

 

Reboot.

 

Go to Windows Update, Change Settings, change option to Check for Updates, But Let Me Choose.  Click OK.

 

Push the button to check for updates.

 

Let us know if the check is accomplished.

When I go to install KB3145739 . it gives me the message that it is not applicable to my system. I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

Well...it's applicable :).

 

I don't have more that I could suggest for Windows Update woes.
