    You can stop services manually.

    1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.

    2. If you receive a notification from User Account Control simply click Continue.

    3. At the command prompt, type the following, commands and then press ENTER after each command.

    net stop wuauserv
    net stop bits
    net stop cryptsvc

    Now try updating.
