    [Error number: 0x8DDD0009]

    Windows Update starts checking for updates - then abruptly stops, displaying
    the "website has a problem and can't display ...." along with [Error number:
    0x8DDD0009].

    Help??

    EdC,

    Open the Application Event log by going to Start, Run, and typing in
    eventvwr.msc
    Click OK.
    Under Source, look for an error associated with MsiInstaller.
    Double click it. If the error states that " MsiInstaller could not find
    msxml3.dll ", then go to Start, Run, and type in
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll
    Click OK.
    You should get a confirmation message that the .dll file was succesfully
    registered.

    If the MsiInstaller error is not in the Application Event log, then open
    a Command Prompt by going to Start, Run, type in
    cmd
    Click OK
    At the prompt type in, and press Enter after each line :

    proxycfg -d
    net stop wuauserv
    net start wuauserv
    exit

    Restart the system. Visit Windows Update. Did that resolve the issue ?
    If not, if there's a 3rd party firewall installed, suggest you
    temporarily disable it and use the built in Windows firewall.
    Now see if the system can access Windows Update.

    Well... it worked for me. I googled the error number that Windows Update gave
    me and it brought me here... I tried the options he gave me and it worked...
    I can install my updates again. I had to do the command prompt, start and
    stop Automatic Updates before it would work for me... I did both just incase,
    though. Anyway, thanks a lot for your advice. :)

    Dear GreenMower

    Re: [Error number: 0x8DDD0009]

    Strangely enough, my Windows Update began automatically just after my sending the above help message! It all works OK now. Please ignore my preceding message. After applying both of your cmd procedures, it finally worked for me!
    Best regards.

    MowGreen,

    I did what you suggested (ran regsvr32 msxml3.dll) and it worked!!! Thanks
    for the help. I wish it all ended up being this easy. Thanks again for
    taking the time to respond and help others, I for one appreciate it.

    Keith.

    Try this

    Go into safe mode.

    Click Start -> Run

    Enter C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution\download (This is assuming
    'windows' is your system directory. This should open the folder.)

    Now delete everything in the folder

    Reboot

    Update and cross fingers

    Re: [Error number: 0x8DDD0009]

    Go into safe mode to delete "C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution\download" is
    overkill. All you need is to use "net stop wuauserv" command (OR select click
    "services" from either "administrative tools" or "computer management" and
    select "automatic update") to stop "automatic update" service. Remember to
    restart the services after completion.

    You can also just rename or delete the parent directory "Software
    Distribution" entirely (you rename to preserve it as a safety net - when you
    are satisfied then later delete it). You would do this to cover the full
    spectrum of Update Services files contained under that folder tree. When the
    service (Automatic Update) is restarted the entire directory is recreated and
    repopulated fresh.

    Thanks to both of you! Combining your suggestions got me out of a mess I've
    been trying to fix (off and on) for more than a year. The machine was not
    mine, so I couldn't just rebuild it, it needed to be "surgically" fixed.

    The great thing about the renaming/moving the SoftwareDistribution
    directory, you can move it back and prove that it was "evilness" in there
    that was the root cause.

    The machine in question was a Win2K SP4 machine, too under powered for XP.
    More than a year ago Windows Update stopped working. I tried many different
    things including certificate deleting and validation tweaking.

    Moving the SoftwareDistribution directory did the trick!

    Thanks again!

    If you installed smart card crypto update just before this happened go to add remove programs and uninstall that update and reboot. It fixed my windows 2000 sp 4 which I was unable to download more updates and got this error 0x8ddd0009.

    Thank you for your assist. The first part didn't work but the second secind
    certainly did. Twelve hours and counting at this. The only problem is that
    after restarting the computer I have to do it all over again. What in the
    ****? None of my other systems have this trouble (15+).

    I had this error too. I noticed that Microsoft offers free support for update-related issues, and contacted them. They gave me a procedure that worked just fine. It is similar to, but has more
    detail than other solutions I saw on the web and tried. Here it is:

    This issue can be caused by incorrect Internet Explorer settings and unregistered system files. I suggest we use following steps to get our issue resolved:

    NOTE: Some third party programs can also affect the Windows Update service. If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or Web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of an Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (McAfee, Norton, etc.), I recommend we temporarily disable or shut them down and then try accessing the Windows Update site later. Please be sure to enable them again when completing the update process.


    Step 1: Reset Internet Explorer settings, and disable third-party Internet Explorer plug-ins

    ==================================================================
    1. Click Start, Run, type: inetcpl.cpl and press Enter.
    2. Select the General tab, and in the Temporary Internet files window, click Delete Cookies, and click OK.
    3. In the same tab click Delete Files, check the "Delete all offline contents" box and click OK.

    4. Click the Programs tab, and click "Reset Web Settings"
    <Note: I couldn't do this because there was no such control, but the fix worked anyway>.

    5. Click the Advanced tab, and click "Restore Defaults".
    <Note: I couldn't do this but there was "Restore Advanced Defaults" and I clicked that; the fix worked anyway>.

    6. Under the Advanced tab, uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restarting).
    7. Click OK.

    Step 2: Re-register system files
    =======================
    1. Click Start, Run, type: notepad C:\register.bat and press Enter. Choose Yes when prompted.
    2. Copy the following commands and then paste them into the opened Notepad window.

    net stop wuauserv
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll /s
    regsvr32 wups.dll /s
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll /s
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll /s
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll /s
    regsvr32 msxml.dll /s
    regsvr32 msxml2.dll /s
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll /s
    regsvr32 urlmon.dll /s
    regsvr32 softpub.dll /s
    regsvr32 initpki.dll /s
    regsvr32 mssip32.dll /s
    regsvr32 wintrust.dll /s
    regsvr32 dssenh.dll /s
    regsvr32 rsaenh.dll /s
    regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll /s
    regsvr32 sccbase.dll /s
    regsvr32 slbcsp.dll /s
    regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll /s
    regsvr32 jscript.dll /s
    net stop cryptsvc
    ren %windir%\SoftwareDistribution sold
    ren %windir%\System32\Catroot2 cat2old
    net start cryptsvc
    net start wuauserv

    3. After you paste the above commands, please close the Notepad window. Choose Yes when prompted to save the file.
    4. Click Start, Run, type: C:\register.bat and press Enter to run the commands we have pasted.

    After we have finished the above steps, please restart the computer and try to update Windows again. If we still encounter an issue after performing the above steps, please capture a screenshot for further research.
