Hi All,

Hope someone can help resolve this problem.

I am trying to install MS updates on a machine and go through the process but the updates will not come down to the machine, it fails every time, see below for error mesages.

1. Update History log
Installation Failure

Error Code: 0x80246008  
Try to install the update again, or request help from one of the following resources.

I have done a search on the Net and it appears to point to BITS but when I try to start bits service I get the following error.
Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer.  For more information, review the System Event Log.  If this is a non-Microsoft service contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code –2147467243

On checking the event log I see this error.

The Background Intelligent Service service terminated with service-specific error 2147500053 (0x0004015)

Source for above is Service Control Manager
Event ID 7024


Hope this helps in resolving my problem.

Cheers All.

Try Dial-a-fix (http://djlizard.net/software/Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24.zip). Check the "WA/WUAU" checkbox and click "GO". Also, click the hammer icon and double-click "Reinstall BITS". Also, send us your HijackThis (http://majorgeeks.com/download3155.html) log.

Thanks for your help and a quick response, much appreciated.  In the end I did not have to re-install BITS but the dial a fix part has done the trick and updates are currently downloading.

Sorry was sure that I had posted the result.  I ran dial a fix without having to re-install BITS and that seemed to the trick!
