Alan,
     If you haven't already opened a support case and are still getting this error here are some things to try.
Run these tools and see if any of them report errors that can't be fixed:
Disk Error Check
System File Checker  
System Update Readiness Tool

If those do come up clean and you still have a problem then you may want to run some virus\malware scans from another source then your current one.  Take a look at these links as they have some great info about virus protection:
Get rid of malware 
Can I clean an already infected computer?   
Windows Live OneCare Safety Scan Windows 7\Vista
