I tried to get WindowsXP home updates, and got this; error 0x8DDD0004.
What does it mean?

Can not display the website.

Message : windows use ActiveX controls to determine what version windows ou
have. Active X controls can be harmful to a computer, make sure it is
digitally signed by Microsoft,

Then I get a pop up; to install ActiveX; publisher: Microsoft Windows
Publisher.

I've never had this problem before, I last updated windows June 16, 2005.

Will someone please advise on this problem. Is it something new Microsoft
has added to the web site for up-dates ??

Make sure your firewall is not blocking the Update site and check any pop up
stopper programs. Now check in IE tools\manage add-ons (Win XP SP2 only)
making sure that WuWebControlClass is enabled. You may also wish to check
c:\windows\Downloaded Program Files to see if anything is corrupted there.

If the above appears to be in order, try re-registering these files, by
clicking
Start, Run and typing:-

REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuapi.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuaueng.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\atl.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\wucltui.dll
REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\wups.dll

You should receive a successful message after each one.

If you need to remove the Windows Update ActiveX controls and re-install

Thanks, technically you maybe right, usefullness not worth a dam, like the
joke going around about Microsoft.

I finally found the website where I could put in the error #, and it gave me
the same info I was getting when I tried to get updates, it said to install
the windows update, by Microsoft windows publisher, I did and everything is
back to normal.
