I've had this happen setting up 3 new laptops with Windows 7 on them (all different models).  The solution was to temporarily change my network adapter to the Google DNS servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.  I was able to switch the adapter settings back after installing all the latest updates, and was still able to successfully check for updates afterwards.

 

Found the solution from a Korean tweet here: https://twitter.com/iskyi/status/505040839182016512
