Can you try the following:

1. Stop the windows update service (Net Stop "Windows Update")
2. Rename the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.OLD (REN C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.OLD)
3. Start the windows update service(Net Start "Windows Update")

Does this resolves your problem?
