This error is generally associated with Microsoft Office. This error usually occurs when Windows tries to install updates through the Windows installer.

Both Windows and third-party firewalls sometimes prevent the computer from installing updates. You need to disable your firewall and then install the updates.

Also, Microsoft does have its own repair tool that you can use if you do not want to or do not know how to disable the firewall.
