Try running the Windows 7 Update Readiness Tool from Microsoft

http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=20858

Make sure the update service is running.

Try running System File Checker. Open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW twice. Allow to complete, restart and test.

If that does not work, try Windows 7 Repair Install. You need a Windows 7 DVD and there is a Seven Forums tutorial to assist.

You should back up before trying this and if it appears easier to you after the backup, reinstall Windows, recover your data and run updates then.

It could be,

Stop the windows update service

Then rename the software distribution folder which currently exists to .old and then restart the service and try windows updates again. What i just stated was suggested in the link i posted above.
