If you’re using McAfee Personal Firewall Plus, F-Secure Internet Security, Norton Internet Security or another Firewall vendor, see its respective support page for assistance in disabling it (temporarily). If you’re using the built-in Vista Firewall,here is the solution.

* Open the Control Panel and select Security.

* Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

* Select Off (not recommended), click Apply and then OK.

* Back at the Windows Update screen, click the Try again button.

* The download(s) and installation should start…

* and this time successfully install. If a restart is required, make sure to re-enable your Firewall once your PC restarts.

Though this solution will work for most Vista Update errors

Worth reading, IMO, Microsoft Vista Support Forum.

Have you tried the Microsoft Fixit from the link supplied by Louis?

What worked for me was what I saw on another site. It instructed me to disengage my wireless so that I had no internet connection. After I disconnected (just by going to the wireless assistant), I downloaded everything that kept coming back as an error.
It really worked...then I just reconnected to my wireless.
