Hi,
Each time I try to start Automatic Updates or BITS on my 2003 64 bit server I receive the following error:
'Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer.  Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run does not implement the service.'  

If anybody can help me get these services started so I can get the latest Microsoft updates I would greatly appreciate it!


Thanks,
Dan
