Vista Important Update will not update. Error details: Code 800B0100

Here's another tricky one.
This important security update will not update. It is only 606Kb.
Microsoft says it is caused by a virus problem. I have Norton 360 installed. Norton say it is not a virus.
Microsoft say pay us $120 to fix it. I say I can't afford to pay that for something when I have no way of knowing exactly what the problem really is.
This has been going on since November 2014. All the other updates are installed immediately but not this one.
