    Hi Guys,
    I am running Windows XP Media Centre Edition Sp2. When I try to go to 'windows updates' site I get an 0x8DDD0018, then when I try the fixes in 'services.msc' I get another error 1058. Have looked for answers everywhere and do not want to try anything I am not sure of. PLEASE HELP, I am worried about not getting the latest security updates.
    Thanks in advance - Steve

    I assume the fix in services.msc was enabling BITS as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910337

    Also, can you verify Remote Procedure Call (RPC) startup type is Automatic and the status shows Started.
