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???
8/22/2022 - Mon
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.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
Can also try
Download and then double click this reg file ...after merging 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.
