Error 0x800704dd

I am currently unable to download my Windows Update updates on a Windows 2000
SP4 systen, and after trying quite a few things mentioned in this board, I am
now stuck with a 0x800704dd error.

I've tried the regsvr32 trick with the wu*.dll files (yes, one at a time),
verified that BITS is up and running, checked every registry entry I could
imagine (Noteably HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows
NT/Winlogin/Notify), and tried just about everything I could think of. Oddly
enough, I was able to download the upgrade from Windows/Office update to
Microsoft Update, but it won't work either (this log is from Microsoft
Update).

I am validated, since I was able to download Microsoft Anti-Spyware without
a problem.

Another (possibly related) item I just noticed... On the Microsoft Update
page, there is a link labeled "Find Hardware SUpport" that I haven't seen on
any other system, and it links to goatce.ca (non-functional site with a name
far too similar to the infamous .cx site). Did a spyware (Ad-Aware, Spybot,
Microsoft Antispyware) and a virus scan (Mcafee), and aside from the usual
tracking cookies, the system was clean.

Log file follows:
*********** DnldMgr: New download job [UpdateId =

Re: Error 0x800704dd

The only other info I have is that it means - Error_Not_Logged_On to network

Can you manually download the updates and install them?

You can download them from the Catalog and save to be installed later.
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...en/default.asp

How to Download Windows Updates and Drivers from the Windows Update Catalog
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=323166

Click Add button for each update you want to download. Once you have what you want,
Click the ?€œGo To Download Basket?€? link. Type in or browse to the location where you
want the updates saved to and then Click the ?€œDownload Now?€? button.
Once downloaded, you can then burn them to CD.

Re: Error 0x800704dd

I had this problem for the past 2 weeks trying to fix it, tried every difficult suggestion I found to no avail. Then today, I fixed it easy as pie and can't believe Microsoft or no one has found the easy solution. I went back where I'd been directed before in the registry..

Run Regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

1st: I renamed the Notify_Disabled to Notify

2nd: I renamed the Notify to Notify_Disabled

Rebooted and windows update is back!!

I did have to first ad an X to the notify or when you change the Notify_Disabled to Notify it will say it already exist.

I could not believe how easy the fix turned out to be.
Now everything is running smoothly!

Great, Sugarberries ! Tried for a couple of days to get that damned Update working, never thinking it could be such a stupid 'boolean' fault. Worked out fine !
