I just tried to use Windows Update, it has been running for maybe 40 minutes. I have internet connectivity. I also see these other errors in the event log: Failed extract of third-party root list from auto update cab at: with error: A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying against the current system clock or the timestamp in the signed file.

I've tried rebooting. It now takes about 15 minutes to boot while telling me 'configuring windows update 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer. Thanks!
I encountered the same update problem for Windows 7 PRO 32 and 64 bit (KB979538) and (KB2158563) and 64 bit (KB2362765). Updates were being installed on shutdown and then restart would indicate configuring updates for many minutes and finally state configuration failed, reverting updates. I then manually installed (KB2362765) from control panel and restarted OK. Then manually installed
(KB979538) and (KB2158563) from control panel and restarted OK. All updates on both systems (32 and 64 bit) indicated successful installation on update history log.
I'm not so trusting of Microsoft on updates any longer so I changed update setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whetner to download and install them."
