This should ALWAYS be enabled on ALL windows. You can configure it to just alert you of updates, to transfer but not install, or to install silently, but you should ALWAYS have it enabled.

You don't need to install it. It's part of the OS. You can disable it, but never uninstall it, AFAIK. Check your services and see if BITS is there. If it is, make sure it's set to automatic and that it's started.
