Try the following (this presumes you are on an account that has admin privileges and can open an elevated Command Prompt):
1. Open Command Prompt with Admin privileges.
2. Enter the commands below one at the time (pressing Enter after each and waiting for each to complete before doing the next):
- net stop wuauserv
- ren %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download DL.bak
- net start wuauserv
- wuauclt.exe /updatenow
The last command should trigger a Windows Update and, with any luck, it won't attempt to reinstall the one it's been insisting on trying to reinstall.
If things look good afterward, you can optionally also enter: del %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\DL.bak
Note: You can copy and paste each command above individually if you do not wish to type them out.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
