    Just 10 hours earlier I had checked Windows Update for SP2 and when I found
    that it still wasn't available, I shut the PC down. The next day, today, I
    get on to check for updates and.....it tells me that I had to set Automatic
    Updates to enable in my Services....well, IT IS SET TO AUTOMATIC! I get this
    error: 0x8DDD0018 which doens't seem to be a recognized error according to
    the search page I went to at Microsoft. I need some help here if anybody has
    it...Thank you for your time.

    I get this same error - Office Update, on the other hand, works well. I
    think MS is flooded with update requests, and I can no longer find XPSP2 on
    the MSDN site. Looks like it has been disabled for now. I hear the official
    release date is the 20th, but I hope the Windows Update is back up and
    running by then...

    What about the BITS service? Set it to Automatic if it
    is not, ans see if that helps...
