Since the first time you turned on the computer - it has had this error and
you have not retuirned it/formatted it before you got everything of yours
'settled into place' by now?
Start free support ticket...
However - I would first reset your Internet router/try a different way of
connecting to the Internet if you have one available to you.
For example - you have a Cable Modem or DSL Modem - and a wireless
router/NAT device (separate physical device) on the other side of it to
share your high speed internet with multiple machines and/or to give you
wireless capabilities... Remove the router/NAT device and connect directly
to the ISP connection (may have to power off/on the modem to do this) and
try your update again.
Remove any third party firewall software you have installed (remove - not
Disable any antivirus/antimalware software you have running *when* you are
trying to update.
Check for any unknown spyware/malware...
We know Vista 64-bit.. But what edition and what service pack?

After performing a full scan with one and then the other and removing
whatever they both find completely, you may uninstall these products,
if you wish.
Download and run the MSRT manually:

And the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1:
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for Windows Vista x64, and
Windows Server 2008 x64
(Follow the directions given under "Additional Information" - three files in
a specific order.)
Ensure you have the latest version of the "Windows Update Agent"...

for review... Although I suggest you look through it for obvious errors and
the likes first.
