This problem somtimes occurs if Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) or the Automatic Update service are stopped.

Make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.
5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.
6. In the Startup type list, click Manual, and then click Apply.
7. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.


If that isn't the case, please report back.
