Security update KB3006226 keeps failing Error code 80073712

I am unable to install Security update for windows 7 for x64 based system KB3006226. It keeps giving me an error code 80073712. I have tried every suggestion on the Microsoft website and the problem still continues. I have been working on this for a month now. The programs I have used can not find the issue. I am unable to attach my logs to this post. This is the first time I have used this.

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)
