    Maybe the following article will offer some ideas:

    Thanks John
    That fixed it.

    Actually, it fixed nothing. It only replaced the corrupted file/directory.

    If you check the logs of Windows Update, you will probably find it had
    been finding no updates for a couple of weeks. The problem is that
    Windows Update doesn't bother to tell you the same problem is preventing
    it from working.

    Considering how many lines of code are contained in Vista, you'd think
    someone would have added some error handling to notify you of the
    problem, advise you to restart Windows and then, execute a script to do
    the same thing you did manually.

    At least Windows Defender tells you there is a problem. The more
    critical Windows Update doesn't bother to do so.
