System restore?  Review update history and download and install the offending patch manually?  If not from normal start, then safe mode with networking?

Normally when I get this issue I try installing smaller amount of updates at a time.

For example on a Windows 7 Professional x64 machine at work there was 78 updates pending for download/install. Once downloaded and installed I restarted and got this message.

I then went back and select 20 updates at a time and the error message never came back up again.

What usually works is when you download the KB's that failed directly from m$, and then install them manually.

It seems like you may wish to repair the Microsoft Update mechanism:-
