I have the same error code as the other people. My problem is that I got this error during install. I'm trying to install bunch of security updates along with service pack 2. I'm on a Toshiba laptop using Vista. I don't think it could be a time out error unless install stoped so the update gave a timeout error?????
I haven't used the laptop in over a year, that's why so many updates. I think the count was 48, but I'm installing only four or five at a time. I was doing five at the time of the error. Four of the five did install. The error came on the last update. I think it was a service pack trying to install. It was pretty big.
I appreicate any help you can provide.

This error code indicates corrupt system files. It is suggested to manually install SP2 first. Then run Windows update to install the remaining updates.
Step 1: Run the System Update Readiness Tool
1. Please download the System Update Readiness Tool from the link below according to the System Type:
System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista 32-bit
Then, let's run System File Checker (SFC) to repair Windows Vista system files.
Step 2: Run System File Checker (SFC) to repair Windows Vista system files
1. Click Start, type "cmd" (without the quote) in the Start Search bar, right-click cmd.exe and click run as administrator.
2. Input the following commands and press Enter after each line.
Note: There is a SPACE between "SFC" and "/Scannow". This command will take several minutes to complete.
Restart the computer.
Then, I suggest downloading the Standalone Installer and installing it in Clean Boot Mode.
Step 3: Download Windows Vista SP2 Standalone Installer
1. Download Windows Vista SP2 Standalone Installer from the link below according to the System Type:
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Five Language Standalone for Windows Vista 32-bit (KB948465) (Size: 348.3 MB)http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a4dd31d5-f907-4406-9012-a5c3199ea2b3&DisplayLang=en
1. Click "Start", type: MSCONFIG in the search box and press Enter.
Note: Please click "Continue" if the "User Account Control" window pops up.
2. Click "Services", check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
3. Click "Startup", click "Disable All", click "OK" and restart the computer.
Note: Temporarily disabling the Startup Group only prevents the startup programs from loading at startup. This shouldn't affect the system or other programs. We can manually run these programs later.
4. Please double click the downloaded Standalone Installer and follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP2.
To restore the computer to use a Normal Startup, repeat step 1 above. Then click "Normal Startup" on the General tab, click "OK", and then restart the computer.
