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???

Reboot and then check bits service.

Post services.msc screenshot.

If service pack 1 is not installed then install it.

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 ...you will not loose your programs or files during this process.
