Windows 7 - BITS is missing

On a newly installed Windows 7 (32-bit PRO), the BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) is missing in the Services.msc.

Therefore I cannot update with Windows Update.

Is there any way to manually re-install BITS???

Run sfc /scannow ...

Reboot and then check bits service.

I did run sfc /scannow - but it said that no problems detected....
Post services.msc screenshot.

If service pack 1 is not installed then install it.

Reboot and check.

I have now installed SP1 - still no BITS service.

(i cannot merge reg-file - error)....

Uninstall all security software like antivirus , firewall etc...Reset security permissions to default.

First install subinacl

Then download reset.cmd.txt and rename it to reset.cmd and run it as administrator

After running subinacl reboot computer and  try running the reg file.

Last option is repair install will not loose your programs or files during this process.
