Turning off the Print Spooler service solved the issue for me.
This didn't work for me.  Still have the same problem.

I suggest that you follow the below steps:
 
1. Disable any Firewall, Antivirus.
2. Manually install the security update from the Microsoft Download Center, and then click Ignore when the error message is displayed.
Download standalone packages of these updates and install. 
Download the Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB976098) package now.
3.Re-enable Firewall, Antivirus once the update is installed.

You may also try reseting Windows Update Components.

solution does not apply to my computer. I've tried every solution suggested and nothing seems to solve it. Now I started to have further problems related to this updates as some software no longer can be installed e.g. latest version of Itunes. Think Microsoft team needs to find a solution!
Furthermore, I recently had some other microsoft win 7 updates applied to my computer and my hp printer stopped printing after.  I've tried reinstalling the printer and the driver install fails everytime!  Several of these win 7 updates are troublesome.
What a TOTALLY USELESS answer Microsoft. The link to provided leads to a Genuine MS check that "isn't supported" anymore CAN WE GET AN ACTUAL RESOLVE AFTER ALL THIS TIME? WHY WHY WHY WON'T YOU HELP SOLVE YOUR OWN ISSUES???
I have the same problem (unable to install update) with a Windows 7 Pro 32 bit version. Is there a solution?
