Updates fail with error code 80070426

I am using Vista Home Premium. My windows update program is failing to install 11 updates since 20/8/2007. They all fail with error code 80070426. I can't find any solution looking at the Microsoft site.

I suspect that an action I took to fix another problem may have caused this one. I was away on holiday for the first 3 weeks of August and when I returned and started using my PC I found my CD/DVD RW drive and my external hard drive could not be accessed. I tried a system restore to the previous day but this did not work. Then I did a system restore to the start of August and this fixed the problem. It is possible these updates had been installed but in doing the system restore the record of the install was destroyed causing this problem.

Any idea what I should do?
