To resolve this error, you must have an internet connection, or you must uninstall the Update Root Certificates component.
To turn off the Update Root Certificates component, follow these steps:
1. Go to Add/Remove Programs (start – run – “appwiz.cpl”)
2. Click the Add/Remove Windows Components button on the left.
3. Clear the Update Root Certificates check box, and then finish the Windows Components Wizard.
Read this

4. In the You can enable or disable this service for the hardware profiles listed below box, click the current hardware profile, and then click Enable.

If that's what you tried and it didn't work, try this:
Click Start, select Run and type: cmd , click OK or press Enter.
Then type the following (pressing Enter and then answering okay after each one):
net.exe stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll
net.exe start wuauserv
Close the window to go back to Windows.
You probably don't have to reboot, but you could do that anyway to make sure the changes work.
