Windows 7 – Windows Update error 8007000D

The following fixed this for me

8007000D – Error_invalid_data. Corruption in the SoftwareDistribution folder. Please rename %windir%/Softwaredistribution folder.

To rename the Windows Update temporary SoftwareDistribution directory follow these steps:

1. Start an administrative command prompt.
2. Run the following commands hitting enter after each line:

  • Net stop wuauserv
  • cd %systemroot%
  • Ren SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
  • Net start wuauserv

3. Reboot
4. Try to install updates again
