I am trying to run Windows update and it is telling me the Service is not running, which is fasle.  MS Fix it says it is not compatible.  I ran the Windows Update prep package - KB947821.  I am starting to see symptoms like this on multiple x64 systems.

I tried everything, but deleting the directory.  That did it.  Thank you!
