Impossible to solve the problem of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 update! (error code 80073712)

original title: could not resolve the problem of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 update!

Hey there,

I got Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 in my laptop when I bought it. Recently there was no updates of security (e.g., KB2481109) to install it into my system with a error: 80073712 and I had received a notification from windows to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2update. I tried to install it from windows update, but I got the error: 8024200d. I read the solution on this site and followed by download the stand-alone file and install "System Update Readiness Tool" (KB947821). ". After that I downloaded the standalone version "Windows Vista Service Pack 2" (KB948465) and tried to install it, but I got the error: 800f081f. "» I did Scan SFC which there is "no question of integrity" in the system, uninstalled "Avira Antivirus software" and again tried to install Service Pack 2 , but again, I've got the error: 80073712 After all this I couldn't solve the problem. Please provide some tips if anyone has solved the same or has a solution!

Thank you very much

I tried to roll back to Flash 9 and it's less, but happens again... someone has any ideas?

    First, uninstall Flash to make sure that's not the problem.  If the problem persists and if the problem is related to the installation of Vista SP2 (as seems to be the case), then Support Microsoft offers free technical support for installation of Vista SP2 issues at: https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?prid=13014&gprid=582034&st=1&wfxredirect=1&sd=gn.  They are experts on these issues and you should take advantage of the offer, although it is still free.  I'm sure they will be able to help you.  Minimize (but do not deny) the update of Flash and to focus on the installation of SP2 when you explain the problem.

    Greetings,
    I've been running Windows Vista for a while now. In general, I have no problem. I tried to install Service Pack 1 with a bit of luck.

    My first attempt was to install using Windows Update. When it installs it gives me error 0 x 80070490

    My second attempt was to install it as a Sandalone by Windows.com. He also gave me an error
    0 x 80070490

    I followed the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947366.
    I tried all resolutions and nothing will work.

    Both times when I try to install it, the bar fills up all the way and then fails (no reboot or anything else) with in a few minutes. It restarts what only it either just fails or not. I tried using safe mode and normal Mode.

    I tried to repair Windows to solve the problem. While the repair done, the computer has restarted and gave me the 'blue screen of death', the only way he could properly load was to load mode without failure. I had to wrap the last know configuration to start normally.

    I'm running out of good ideas please help

    Unfortunately with your error code, it is usually a necessary repair install, but the damage may be too much even for a repair installation.
