...wife opened a e-mail from "Pay-Pal"...yep...virus city...1-2 days later, finally cleaned it all up BUT no BITS services...so no updates...looked and looked..almost getting ready to wipe clean and start over AND came across this... minutes later..ALL is well...thanks so much !

...just a quick addition..the virus(s) that attacked were the pretend anti-virus software..DANGER DANGER YOUR HARD DRIVE IS FAILING"..kinda flashing messages with a phony disc scan report and buy this software to fix the problem etc etc...well besides taking over IE,Firefox and Google Chrome, and disable MSE..it apparently deleted or renamed the BITS services...in going thru all the various MS fixes,none worked btw, I could never locate the BITS file..anywhere...your BITS reg fix was the ONLY fix that worked.. Malware,AVG, Trend Micro and a few others..TDS Killer...they removed the virus(s),not sure they would have damaged the BITS file...maybe?...just a thought...
