Does anyone have a resolution
See if the information in this MSKB article helps resolve the problem:
You receive a "0x80070020 The process cannot access the file because it is
being used by another process" error message when you try to download an
update from Windows Update or from Microsoft Update

Try stopping background Automatic Updates before visiting the Windows Update
site again. Open a command prompt window and type the command:
net stop wuauserv
then visit Windows Update and see if the updater now works.

I was able to disable teatimer from the task bar. Apparently it
doesn't play well with WGA.
How? Right click the spybot icon (on the start bar near the clock) and
choose "Exit Spybot-S&D Resident".
As simple as that.
You can go back and enable it after you update.
