    This is the message I get: Read more about steps you can take to resolve this problem (error number 0x8DDD0007) yourself.

    I did the following:
    1- Rebooted
    2- check for the registry key
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired" but doesn't exist.
    3- Re-register Windows Update components and Clear the corrupted Windows
    Update temp folder, which involved:
    a. Click on Start and then click Run,
    b. In the open field type "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without quotation marks) and
    press Enter.
    c. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message,
    click OK.
    d. Please repeat these steps for each of the following commands:
    REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
    REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
    REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL
    After the above steps are finished reboot.
    Since temporary folder of Windows Update may be corrupted. We can refer to
    the following steps to rename this folder
    a. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the opened window.
    net stop WuAuServ
    b. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
    c. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to SDold.
    d. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following
    command in the opened window.
    net start WuAuServ

    Still nothing

    ANy ideas??

    I followed the instructions with the exception of the part about sfc /scannow

    I get the following error message:

    Error loading SetupOpenFileQueue

    Did the System File Check (sfc /scannow) ask for your Windows CD?

    Try this it looks similar but might work

    Manually registering files solves the problem

    If you find that Windows Update refuses to install most patches, you can register its missing DLLs yourself. This can be accomplished by manually entering seven commands (shown in Step 2, below) at a command prompt. If you need to run the fix on multiple machines, it's easiest to use a batch file, as Steps 1 through 5 explain:

    Step 1. Open Notepad (or any text editor).

    Step 2. Copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window (the /s switch runs the commands silently, freeing you from having to press Enter after each line):

    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 atl.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    regsvr32 wups2.dll
    regsvr32 msxml.dll
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll
    regsvr32 msxml2.dll
    regsvr32 qmgr.dll
    regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Step 3. Save the file to your desktop, using a .bat or .cmd extension.

    Step 4. Double-click the icon of the .bat or .cmd file.

    Step 5. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

    The next time you visit the Windows Update site, you should not have any problem installing the latest patches.
