    Default Windows Update doesn't work

    I always get the error code 80073712 and hangs me up when I check for
    updates. I checked with MS support and nothing they tell me to do works on
    solving this problem. Do any of you folks out there know how to correct this
    problem?
    Thanks for all your help.

    Delete the following file:
    C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml

    Since Windows security will not allow you to do this, here under the procedure to take ownership of the file:

    Run a command prompt with “Run as Administrator”. Type in the following commands:
    takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml
    icacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G [Your Username]:F

    Delete the file.

    Reboot the machine, then manually install the WUA 3.0 downloadable from here
