I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First, BITS is not always running (not on my machines).  But it should be ready to run.

Run System File Checker: Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, run a second time. close the command window and restart the computer. Now restart the BITS service and see if all is well.

Are Windows Updates running? You may also need to run the Windows Update Readiness tool.

Hi - so sorry - got sidetracked.

I did try these solutions - did not work. Ran Malwarebytes - found malware. removed malware, rebooted and BITS came back.

Note: BITS was not even listed in services before starting. Windows updates did not work and a program install failed...

You may need to run a Windows 7 Repair Install, and if the malware was embedded deep enough, you may have to reinstall Windows 7 completely.

You can run a Repair Install from the Windows 7 DVD and sometimes from the recovery partition. Here is a Seven Forums tutorial to assist with the steps.
