    Secuity Update KB2799494 Installation FAIL!!

    My Windows 7 machine, otherwise quite happy, will not install the last three updates I've tried to install, including recommended update KB2761217 and security update KB2799494. They fail with the error: Code 80073712 (unknown error).

    I attempted to run SFC /scannow to in hopes that would correct the problem. But, SFC reports "Verification 0% complete" and therefore doesn't find any integrity problems.

    Any suggestions other than reinstalling? I have over 90 different applications installed on this machine. The last thing I want to do is have to re-install all 90 programs!

    Have you run a malware scan? I would start with Malware Bytes Anti-malware.

    Yes, I did run a Malwarebytes scan, and a few rootkit detectors. Nothing unusual came up.
