Error Code 80070570

I receive Error Code 80070570 every time Windows tries to update my computer.  It is listed as an Important Update.  Is there a way for this to be fixed?
Download and install the latest version of “Windows Update Agent ” on your computer.

How to obtain the latest version of the Windows Update Agent to help manage updates on a computer

Information for network administrators about how to obtain the latest Windows Update Agent

To reinstall Windows Update Agent - download the relevant file for your system and save it to a drive where Vista is not loaded because the file cannot be launched directly from the system root directory.

Click Start, click Run, type: "D:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce" (without quotations) and then press Enter to install the Windows Update engine.

Note: There is a space between "D:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" and "/wuforce"

D: is the drive where Windows is not installed (ie a flash drive or a 2nd hard drive etc)
