Microsoft is providing Windows users with an automatic method designed to reset the components associated with Windows Update. To have us reset the Windows Update components for you, go to the "Fix it for me" section. To reset the Windows Update settings yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section. “To reset the Windows Update components automatically, click the Fix it button or link. Click Run in the File Download dialog box, and then follow the steps in the Fix it wizard. This Fix it Solution has two modes Default and Agressive. You should run the Fix it solution in Default mode and determine if it resolves your problem with Windows Update before running it in Agressive mode,” explains Microsoft via KB971058.
