This error code translates to ERROR_INTERNET_CANNOT_CONNECT. This could be caused by
firewall software blocking the Windows Update Site.
If indeed you have done everying MS said, then perhaps we need to look at another cause -
Open your Local Area Connection via Network Connections in Control

Click on TCP/IP, click Properties.
Make sure that "Obtain an IP address Automatically" is selected
Make sure that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is selected.
If already marked as such and no joy, then see if the system can access
this page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic76554.html
If yes, then follow Steps 1 - 11 to run FixWareout.exe
Please post the 'report.txt' as described in Step 11 so that we can see
if the system was infected or still is.
