3.Try reset WU components in aggressive mode How do I reset Windows Update components?
4.Import this fix Attachment 65622 to registry and restart computer

If nothing help find CBS.log in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder and attache to post,if file will be too big to attache then upload it on RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
