    disabling windows firewall worked for me. remember to switch it back on
    afterwards if you dont have a 3rd party firewall.

    The Windows 7 firewall, in it's *DEFAULT* configuration, does not
    interfere with updating. The only way it will is if the User sets the
    Profile to an improper firewall Profile or tries to configure it without
    understanding what they are doing.

    Hence the name ' Windows Firewall with Advanced Security '.
