Windows update v5 hangs with error 0x8DDD0004

Just recently, and post putting SP2 on my sons pc I can't get Windows update to run.It stops responding at the "checking for the latest version of updater" screen then throws up the above error code.

I've done a Google and the sort of things I get are suggesting that re-registering some .dll files should work (it didn't) or that you MUST be using Microsoft's vm javascript(the pc in question has Sun java installed).



Has anyone else come across this error or got any solutions?

Thanks guys..something else to try tomorrow..Son, aged 9 is tucked up in bed asleep right now so I can't attempt a fix as the pc is in his bedroom,lol



uisge dorch,I had already found that forum,but missed that particular item.I'm hoping it IS just a simple configuration problem as I've already tried running CHKDSK,sfc and a repair instalation of both windows and SP2 without success.If I don't find a simple solution then I'm looking at a reformat and clean reinstall..thanks again.

I've now tried all the fixes I can find without success..however if I access the update site through administrator options then I can run an update check using V4 of the updater.This works perfectly!

Oh well, maybe I'll find a solution eventually,lol.
