Windows update error message
I am getting Error number: 0x8DDD0004 when trying to access Windows update
and I think it might be something to do with an "Add on" which I seem to be
missing.

Can anyone tell me how do I add the WUWebControl Class IE helper add-on. It
is absent from my list of add-ons? I am using Internet Explorer 7 and
Windows XP SP3.

Any help appreciated.
