Windows XP BITS Update Nightmare Fixed


Your ERROR Code May Look Different.. But Same Solution


I was recently having murder updating a windows XP machine, I could access the updates but each download said FAILED, I tried the windows update fix-it, the microsoft update fixit, even tried forcing the re-install of the windows update package with the  /wuforce command, all to no avail.

Then I noticed in my Windows Services that BITS was missing gone done a bunk and fkd off
Then suddenly i noticed it, but instead of BITS it was listed as

Display Name  @%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll,-1001

Description @%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll,-1000
I was unable to start the Bits service

Then i realized the Display name was to throw off  I.T guys, they see the string and assume yeah its their
but its not, it should be listed as this..

Display Name  BITS

and the description should be

Description @%SystemRoot%\system32\qmgr.dll,-1001

Path to executable C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

to restore the bits service, create a TEXT file and paste this code into it
(make sure NO lines have spaces at the end or random symbols word wrap OFF)
