Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the last Microsoft Windows Update sent out on 10/9/12 my windows update feature no longer works and I get the Code 80073712 error.  I have attempted all 4 fixes specified with no luck.  The last recommendation is to perform the Windows 7 Upgrade.  I inserted my original Windows 7 Home Premium CD into the computer and it tells me that I'm unable to upgrade as the version on my computer is newer than the version on the CD. 

    I figured I could go direction to microsoft.com to get the latest updates, but didn't realize that it too reverts back to the Microsoft Update feature, so cannot get my updates that way either.  

    Also attempted to restore computer to an older data back in September, but this did not change the fact that I cannot use the Update feature and can no longer receive Windows 7 Security Updates!  Very frustrated at the moment and could use some guidance.
