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.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

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.
