My boss computer cant install the update KB976902. While trying to install it through windows update or manual installation i am getting the error 80073712
I ve tried whatever suggestions i found on the net but didint work.
My last hope is to reformat it but i dont want to do it if there is another option that might help me.
If i dont install the above update i wont be able to install any future updates.

The WMI may be corrupt. Go to Start > Run and type in services.msc and press [Enter]. Then Stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service. Go to C:\Windows\System32\wbem and rename the Repository folder. Then Start the Windows Management Instrumentation service. Try installing the update again.

No, it will recreate that folder and its contents when the service is started back up. You may also want to perform a System File Check afterwards. Go to Start and type cmd in the Search field. Right-click on the Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator. Click [Yes]. Then type in sfc /scannow and press [Enter].

Run system readiness tool. I hope you have win7 32 bit. After running this tool restart the computer and then install the update.

After running this tool upload the checksur.log. Dont worry small issue will get fixed.

    * %SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log
    * %SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.persist.log
