and next restart computer

If you don't have BITS service or cannot to run it,none of previous method help...

Import BITSWin7.reg below fix for BITS service to registry.


Because for some subkeys Administrators defaultly don't have full control to workaround this problem,import this fix from SYSTEM account

1.Download PsTools,extract from this psexec.exe file and put it in C:\Windows\System32
2.Download my fix for BITS service and unpack it anywhere e.g on your desktop
3..Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges (right click on cmd.exe and choose "run as admin") and type:

psexec -s -i -d regedit

//This command run regedit from System account.//

4.Go to File>>Import choose location where you stored BITSWIN7.reg file,choose it and apply.
