I've hit this error several times in the past year. The easiest way to fix this is to let Windows fix itself.

1. Go to Administrative Tools/Services and find the Windows Update service. Stop it.
2. Go to C:\Windows\ and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to something like SoftwareDistribution.old
3. Restart the Windows Update service.
4. Click the Check for Updates button on the Windows Update screen.
5. Windows will perform the check - it may take some time, so leave it running. Eventually it will successfully complete.
6. You can then delete the SoftwareSistribution.old folder.

Hey, maomoondog!

Thank you, this helped me. It was the answer. I have searched for a couple of days and have tried many
solutions", but this was the one that worked, immediately! I had to restart the computer before I renamed the folder, but other than that it worked! THANK YOU!
