    Help I get Error number: 0x8DDD0018 when I try to do a windows update

    Windows Update cannot continue because a required service application is
    disabled. Windows Update requires the following services:
    Automatic Updates enables detection, downloading, and installation of
    critical updates for your computer.
    Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) enables faster, restartable
    downloading of updates.
    Event Log logs Windows Update events for troubleshooting. To ensure that
    these services are enabled:

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type services.msc and then click OK.
    3. In the list of services, right-click the service name, and then click
    4. In the Startup type list, select Automatic.
    5. Verify that the service status is started.

    I have followed those steps but it made no difference. If anyone can help me
    I would be very grateful.

    I have just encounterd a similar problem with Windows XP Installation Wizard.
    I recived the message that there is an internal error with the code:
    0x8002802B and the description: Element not found.

    a) Start all required services
    b) Set automatic updates to start AUTOMATIC (stupid, shouldn't make a
    difference, I know)

    Then try again...
