Have you got the fix for this from the Windows Update site?

I've got this as well with a printer driver. After refering it to MS I ended up having to manually download (from the Windows catalog site, via left pane of update) extract it, delete the old driver and install, has taken about 14days of 'try and delete'. I think they are having a problem with automatic third party updates.

if it downloads ok but fails when trying to install then,check that cryptographic services are set to automatic in control panel/administrative tools/services.
