    windows 8 Update error 0x80073712

    I am not able to install Windows update KB2898868. When I trying to do the same I am getting a error 0x80073712. I am not able to understand why this error keeps on appearing on the screen when everything here is working fine.

    I am using Windows 8.1 64bit operating system. I am just fed up with the error. It keeps on appearing. I had tried to install the update in safe mode also but it is not working. Can anyone help.

    It is due to damage update. It is not proper and it will keep on giving you the error if you are trying to install it through Windows update. You have to manually download the update and install it in your system. This will help you in getting the rid of this error. KB2898868 is an essential security update that you cannot miss. I am giving you the download link below. Just download the same and install it in your system.

    Download Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5

    There are two things you can try out to fix the issue. First you have to run system restore. There are chances that some existing update in your system is causing the problem. So first do that and then try to install the update once again.

    But if that also fails to work then there is one more option that can resolve the issue. You can download a fix from this link. Just click on that and download the fix. Install it in your pc and reboot.
