Windows Update – Error number: 0x8DDD0018

When attempting to run Windows Update the following message appears: ‘Error number: 0x8DDD0018.’ This message states that the Automatic Updates, BITS, and Event Log services must be started, but they are all started and WinUpdates still fails.

Run this command from a command prompt:

regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll
