Server 2003 Update No Longer Working - BITS won't start - please advise

Well - this has been a topic before but hoping someone can help. One of our older server 2003 (R2 Standard Edition SP2 32-bit) boxes will no longer update - it did as of a month ago but now no joy.

Error is always the same - 0x80246008 - which is related to BITS - a check on BITS and it won't start anymore (POS).  It gives server specific error code 2147023533 but can't find any info on this.

check out MSKB article 910337 but it didn't address this specific issue.

This has been a good box over the years just serving as a backup DNS and DHCP - if we can't apply the updates  - how risky is that?

Any help much appreciated.

Frustrating issue - this machine still does not update but happily keeps chugging along oblivious to the fact.

"Experts Exchange" indeed. I googled the problem, and the "hit" on this page stated "SOLVED!" All I had to do was sign up and cough up.

Well - worst kind of bait-and-switch I have ever seen: in fact the problem is NOT solved, the original asker states quite clearly and explicitly in his post that the problem is not solved, and the only suggested solution applies to a different problem. So, in fact, bait and LIE.

I kept my membership open just long enough to post this comment. This is the first and only time I have searched for a solution to an error message where Expert Sexchange have been the only ones to offer a solution, so if you don't in fact have a solution why should I pay $13 a month or whatever it is for no benefit?

Wonder how many suckers there are out there paying for stuff you can get for free in a thousand other places. I thought the dot-com bubble burst more than 10 years ago.
