Do you get this error message when you are installing one Windows Update or a number of Updates at the same time?  In either case is the problem Update named?  What is the KB number?
Did you recently install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320

There are many possible reasons for problems with Windows Updates.  Here are some of the fixes.

Did you check in Services that Windows Update service and Remote Call Procedure service are on?

Reset Windows Update
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058/en-us

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/windows-update-issues/en-us

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906602

Fixit
http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/en-us

Reinstall Windows Update Agent (different links for different Win 7 systems (32bit and 64bit))

http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.1.6001.65/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.1.6001.65/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe 

Run the Windows Update Readiness tool:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20858 for X64

Scan for viruses and other malware.

Run SFC /SCANNOW from a Command Prompt

Run a System Restore to a date before the problem started or before installing Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320.

Run a Repair Install.  A Repair Install should not affect personal data or installed programs. but it never hurts to backup first.

Run a System Restore back to a restore point before you installed the recent Update Agent.
