Windows Update Error [0x8DDD0003]

See if you find a registry value NoWindowsUpdate orDisableWindowsUpdateAccess that is set to 1.
Start/Run ==> regedit.exe
Under the registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Policies\Explorer

delete the value "NoWindowsUpdate" if it exist.
Under the registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Policies\Windows Update

delete the value "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess" if it exist.
Under the registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Windows Update

delete the value "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess" if it exist.
If you did any changes, log off and on again.
If the above didn't help:
Do a registry search (in regedit.exe, be sure to have "My Computer"selected when starting each search)) for registry values with name
NoWindowsUpdate
andDisableWindowsUpdateAccess
andNoAutoUpdate
and delete if found.
Note that if your computer is member of an Active Directory domain,and this this is a policy set with Group Policy, the registryvalues will re-appear at next GPO-refresh.

Excellent. That did the trick. I work for a large software company that must've done that to my machine (they use their own "pushes" to update machines). Thank you very much.
