I had a problem similar to this , I had 3 updates that would not load, I was told by a Moderator at MS tech net to do a repair installation of W7. This solved my problem. Be aware this is a time consuming process and at the end you will have a bunch of updates to re-install I had 50 plus.

Thank you for the information :)

Sometimes a direct download of the update will work instead of using the updater:
