Step 1: Use System File Checker to repair damaged Windows files

Use the System File Checker tool to repair damaged Windows files. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Run the "sfc /scannow" command.
  3. Try to install update again.
For more information about the System File Checker tool, see Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833) .

Step 2: Run the DISM tool

If the problem continues, use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool to fix Windows Update corruption errors. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open an elevated command prompt.
  2. Run the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" command.
    Important When you run this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions. However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, use a running Windows installation as the repair source, or use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share or from a removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source of the files. To do this, run the following command instead:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
    Note Replace the C:\RepairSource\Windows placeholder with the location of your repair source. For more information about using the DISM tool to repair Windows, reference Repair a Windows Image (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx) .
To learn more about this tool, see Fix Windows corruption errors by using the DISM or System Update Readiness tool (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821) .
