    When attempting to run Windows Update the following message appears: 'Error
    number: 0x8DDD0018.' This message states that the Automatic Updates, BITS,
    and Event Log services must be started, but they are all started and
    WinUpdates still fails. Zone Alarm has been installed, but no events blocking
    updates show in the logs. TIA for any help on this one...

    I'm also having the exact same problem. I've followed all of the
    instructions to no avail.

    Little help? Anyone?

    I still can't find anything further on this. Do you have ZoneAlarm or another
    firewall installed ? Did you disable any other services ? Also, my MS Office
    Update seems to work fine -just the Windows Update, which originally worked
    okay when Windows was first installed, fails with the above-mentioned error.

    found another post on here that suggested running this command from a command

    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll

    and after running this and setting all of the above-mentioned services to
    start automatically the WU worked okay for me. hope this helps ...

    this works!:
    run this command from a command

    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll

    and after running this and setting all of the above-mentioned services to
    start automatically the WU worked okay for me.

    Thank you for this. This problem has been driving me nuts for 4 days, and
    Microsoft has been completely useless with the support.

    Hi, I came up this AM with same problem. All services were running though
    AutoUpdate was set to manual. Without changing the "manual", I ran the
    regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll and that was all needed to get to the updates.
    Thanks for the info!

    .... i don't know why but it is not working for me... it will write that
    regsvr32 was successful but the update page i still working... i think that
    the reason of my problem with the Error number: 0x8DDD0018 is because i had
    virus - the Virtumonde trojan horse - and i had to delete some of (maybe)
    important files from windows folder... so it is not still working for
    me...pls help :(
