    http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/showarticle.aspx?articleid=36&ln=en&IsMu=False
    When accessing the Update site, you receive the 0x8ddd0004 error

    or


    1. Now check in IE tools\manage add-ons (Win XP SP2 only) making sure that
    WuWebControlClass is enabled. (Select "Add-ons that have been used by Internet
    Explorer" in the "Show:" drop down list)

    2. You may also wish to check c:\windows\Downloaded Program Files to see if anything
    is corrupted there.

    3. Make sure you accepted the Microsoft Trust Certificate

    4. Check security settings, make sure they are not set too high

    5. Delete cookies and temp files

    6. Re-register 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.
    Try Windows Update Again.

    If that hasn’t helped you may need to re-register some more files:-

    net stop cryptsvc
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 wintrust.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
    regsvr32 dssenh.dll
    regsvr32 rsaenh.dll
    regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll
    regsvr32 sccbase.dll
    net start cryptsvc

    You should receive a successful message after each one.

    The basic problem is that windows is unable to install
    "Windows update " and keeps prompting me about it.

    Is there any way to check how to install this piece of software.

    Thank you
    -Junaid
