This isn't your fault, it's Windows' fault. Many other people, including myself have had this issue, and many other issues with windows updates. In this case, just view the updates that it is trying to install, and right click and hide update. You're not going to get them to install no matter how hard you try, so don't worry about installing them.
I also had a problem where I was getting an error message every time I would try to install WinRAR, or run Nexus Mod Manager (For skyrim, oblivion, etc.) that said 'Ordinal 459 could not be found in dynamic link library'. I looked on their knowledge base and found many other people having the same problem, and some had solutions that fixed it for them, but I tried them all and nothing worked, so I ended up having to just reinstall windows, and this time turn updating off. Despite having updating off, Windows still has installed some updates. I just don't get it, but so far I haven't had any problems.
