    80070714 - ERROR_RESOURCE_DATA_NOT_FOUND. Corruption in the SoftwareDistribution folder.
    Please rename
    %windir%/Softwaredistribution folder.

    How to rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in Vista -
    1. Stop the Windows Update service (make sure you are logged on as an Administrator)

    Start button || Control Panel ||System and Maintenance ||Administrative Tools
    Double-click Services
    (Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)
    Right-click the Windows Update service and click Stop.

    2. Click Start, type %windir% in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

    Locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder.

    3. Start the Windows Update service

    Start button || Control Panel ||System and Maintenance ||Administrative Tools
    Double-click Services
    (Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)
    Right-click the Windows Update service and click Start.

    This procedure will erase your history on the Windows Update Site. Not important.

    If you're happy, you can delete the renamed folder later.
    BTW - Make sure you reboot as the folder will not be recreated properly until you do.
