Look in post #7 for the proper suggestion.

found this fix from my other user forum, give it try and let me know if it works.

 

don't forget to back up registry before you run the following command. 

 

"Open an Elevated Command Prompt (same as Run As Administrator) with right click on cmd, and run the following commands

REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS
REG DELETE HKLM\COMPONENTS /V PendingRequired

then reboot, and try Windows Update again."

Don't just hate when that happens.

 

Let's try this again.

 

Go to the Microsoft Download Center and download the Update Readiness tool for Windows 7.

Do you have SP1 installed on this computer?

 

The operating system on this computer is Windows 7, right???
