Windows 7: Windows Update error 80073712

Windows Update error 80073712

For the past few days Windows update has continued to fail.
I feel like Ive tried everything to resolve this and from what I can gather my only option is to reinstall Windows. But then I spotted this
Windows Update Error 80073712
and thought maybe there was hope.....

I removed YAC, ran Avast and Malwarebytes. Removed a few things along the way.
I have run the SURT and sfc scan a number of times.
I found some corrupt files - tcpmon.ini, utc.app.json, telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json
I replaced tcpmon.ini with a clean version from another computer and gather from other forums that the other two can be ignored for now.

And last night I reset Windows Update components (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058) which looked like it had worked but sadly not.

I've gone round a few circles.....any help would be greatly appreciated

I have attached a compressed CBS.log - the CBS folder seems too large to attach

Cheers
Johnson

Any one got anything on this one? I see quite a few others with the same error number but not sure if it's the same cause.

The SFC errors can be ignored - they are caused by an MS coding error that has no effect on the system (they have promised to fix it 'real soon now' )

We need to see the other logs in the CBS folder as well.
Please post the CheckSUR.log file - it's probably going to be the most useful

I actually got this sorted elsewhere just a moment ago - there was an issue that required me adding a file to the Manifests folder.
Not sure what that was myself, but it worked!
Now it's all good
Thanks for getting back to me.

Sorry it took so long - I've been offline for most of the past week.
