0x800706BB is RPC_S_SERVER_TOO_BUSY.
If your site is using Windows Server Update Services to redirect to a local WSUS server, talk to whoever is in charge of the WSUS at your site.

Remove the user account that is experiencing difficulty from the Guests or Limited account groups:

1. Click Start, click Run, type control admintools, and then click OK.
2. Click Computer Management
.
3. Expand Local Users and Groups.
4. Select Users.
5. Open the account that is used to access Windows Update.
6. Click the Member Of tab.
7. Select the user account that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

also looked at the services to make sure it was running as local

0x800706BB (RPC_S_SERVER_TOO_BUSY) indicates a temporary busy offline condition on the server.   I suspect that your changes may not have actually changed the underlying problem.  Rather they were coincidental with the server coming back online.
Error 0x800A0046 can be due to the following:
- The folder "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" has the Hidden property.  (Right click, Properties). Turn off the Hidden property for the folder.
- Fix Group Policy: In Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment.  In the right pane, find "Impersonate a client after authentication".  Add "Adminstrator", "Local Service", "Network Service", and "Service".
You will need to relogon for Group Policy change to take effect for the Administrator account.  You will need to reboot for the Group Policy change to take effect for the service accounts.
If that doesn't work, follow the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910338

This looks like one of those problems where you have to resort to a shotgun approach, trying dozens of different possible fixes.
Good luck!

"The time service encountered an error and was forced to shut down.  The error was: 0x800706BB: The RPC server is too busy to complete this operation."

I am getting this Error. Dont know the resolution for this.

Prior to this I made the below changes in the Registery :

In Registry Editor, went on the below path

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon
In the details pane, double-clicked DependOnService and added TermService on a new line.

Is this change in any way, the cause for the above error.
