    Your subject says you know what the problem is. Uninstall the offending
    application or contact their technical support for help.

    Try this:
    http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5consumer/showarticle.aspx?articleid=21&ln=en

    Instead of following the procedure above to rename the
    SoftwareDistribution folder, you can delete it running the
    commands below in a command prompt (Start/Run --> cmd.exe)

    net.exe stop wuauserv
    rd /s /q %windir%\softwaredistribution
    net.exe start wuauserv
