Windows update failing to install updates

Hey everyone,

I've been trying to install Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2797052) fors some time now. Here are the results I get everytime:

I have tried to stop windows update, rename the softwaredistribution folder, start windows update and then restart the computer. I also turned off my AVG free edition for the length of "until restart" before downloading. Then I tried to reinstall the update and it will not work. I get the same error code. Optional updates will not install either. Does anyone else have an idea as to what I should do?

I am running windows 7 Professional 64-bit too.

  1. I have a similar problem with update KB2797052 but i don't have problems with optional updates.

    My error code was different: '80073712'

    I installed Internet Explorer 10, hopefully it doesn't have the same problem with future security updates.

    Here is a registry fix that might solve your error:
  2. Unfortunately that idea didn't work. Thanks for the help tho! Does anyone else have a suggestion? Thanks!
