How to fix window update error 80073712

Windows won’t get automatic updates after a fresh install. Here’s what you need to do:
(1) Turn automatic updates off. Computer may take time while “searching for updates”.
(2) Get Internet Explorer 11 update (enter it in the Bing box to find it). Install it & reboot.
(3) Now enter “Windows Update Client (current month) 2016” into Google, Bing or Yahoo. Download & install it. Afterward, you’ll be prompted for a reboot.
(4) Now, turn automatic updates back on. Give it a few minutes to get the update IDs (your hard drive should be running more). If you’re on 50MB/s Internet speed, this should take less than 10 minutes. Give it more time if your Internet is slower.
