First, access the "Windows Update" service and stop it at "Start-Run-type 'services.msc'.. Next, create a new directory "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.old", then move the
contents of "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" into that folder (cut &
paste), and then trying "Windows update" again. Running Windows Update should create new, uncorrupted contents for the directory.
(Sometimes it's easier to rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder to "SoftwareDistribution.old", then create a new one with the same name in the same C:\Windows location.)
Hope this helps.
