    Error number: 0x8DDD0004 - ActiveX not working

    Does anyone know the root cause of this error: 0x8DDD0004 when attempting to
    use the Windows Update site. I have read all the posts and have run through
    all the supposed fixes, but the problem still persists. ActiveX seems to be
    totally disabled even though the security settings indicate otherwise.

    The laptop I am working on had Winfixer on it. Have since removed it. AOL
    Spyware, ADware SE and Spybot Search and Destroy all indicate that the
    machine is clean.

    There was a corrupted file in C:\windows\Downloaded Program Files\. I
    removed it, but still no luck. The WUWeb Control Class is enabled. I have
    added the windows update sites to the trusted zone. I have re-registered all
    the recommended DLL's.

    Any other thoughts/ideas? Is there a way to re-install ActiveX
    functionality?

    Thx,

    Re-install Windows Update files

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v6...gent20-x86.exe

    Note If you have an x64-based computer, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v6...gent20-x64.exe

    Click Save in the File Download-Security Warning dialog box, and then select the location where you
    want to save the file.
    Double-click the file that you saved

    NB - A note from Torgeir Bakken [MVP]

    Note that if it says "Install is not needed since Windows Update Agent is already installed.", run
    the exe with the command line switch /wuforce, like this:
    WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe /wuforce
