Well, from one problem to another :pfff: 

well as you can tell i get this error when i try to update, also 25 important updates didn't install when i tried.

i also can not locate the BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) in the services window, i know that a lot of people have had this issue but no fixes have been seen.

EDIT: now 27 updates FUUUUUU

Hi,

I've had a similar problem only in the last few days. I was missing upward of 30 updates, and regardless of what I did, it wouldn't update windows.

I tried a number of fixes, and eventually (with some luck) managed to get it fixed.

Started with this WU fixit tool

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Troubleshoo...

then, searched the MS site for the BITS fixit tool. Ran both, and rebooted and hey presto windows began updating again.

I hope this helps.

EDIT: Additionally here's the name of the BITS Fix : Windows6.0-KB940520-x86-ENU can't seem to find the page now.

okay, there is an additional step that may be required. But doesn't seem to be a fix for everyone with this problem.

you must delete the windows update folder: c: windows/software distribution/downloads

it is safe to delete this folder.

Reboot your pc, and try the fixes once more, then reboot, and hopefully that will kick the Windows Update into action. You may have to download/install previous updates, but that is minor if the fix works.

cheers

edit: just for clarification, you must delete the 'downloads folder' only. Not the software distribution folder itself. :)

I realize this is an old post, but I wanted to add to it as I found this post that worked for me, and I didn't see this solution posted on Tomshardware anywhere.

http://www.pcandtablet.com/windows-7-errors-and-crashes...

The directions from Pixel are what I followed and it ended a week of frustration for me!

Sorry but all those option does not work. you have to download that Win 7 BITS REGISTER to run it on your pc and try again. Of Course BITS might not be the only one missing. I solved this issue many times for my company clients. Try look if your windows firewall still works. Same goes for your scanner updater.if i can find that link again i post it.
-found the zip name called : Seven.zip

FOUND SOLUTION: http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/files/download/9-re...
Download that and extract it to a folder where you can easily find it.
Double click on BITs.reg and restart PC and try again.
Posted below. BTW i read some other pages regarding this windows update error and most of the time i see re install which isn't needed. All they gotta do is follow Tutorial below. Also it let me thinks that those who said re-install aren't advanced IT.
