Windows 7: Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) will not start ERR 1068

Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) will not start ERR 1068

So, when troubleshooting a Windows Update error (Code 80246008) I found that the problem seems to be that the BITS service isn't running.

When attempting to start the BITS service from the Services > BITS > Properties panel, it shoots an error dialogue box reading

"Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service on Local Computer.

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

It appears that it has several dependent services (7 of them to be exact) and I'm having trouble pin-pointing the issue. It there a way I could just repair/restore the whole tree of services, killing the issue wherever it may be?

Thanks in advance.

Edit : I'm backtracking all the services. It seems that the BITS dependencies list just lists the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) twice. When checking the Remote Procedure Call's status, it is already started. This is making no sense to me now.

Here's the tree of processes that the BITS service seems to be having problems with :

Edit 2 : I want to be very clear, so here's all the info in screenshot form :

So I got this error when trying to use Windows Update.

Which after looking up the error code found that it has to do with BITS, so it lead me to check the service, which threw an error when I tried to start it.

So I then checked it's dependencies.

Which then led me to check on RPC, which is already started and can't be stopped even if I wanted to.

...and now I've hit at a dead end at figuring out where the problem is originating.

The only changes I've made to my computer recently was uninstall old games and programs, and remove their folders from the hidden directories with names like "LocalLow", "Roaming", "AppData", "Temp", and "ProgramData". I only remove folders that are obviously parts of things I've already deleted, such as the games.

I'm really hoping that this didn't come about from using CCleaner's registry cleaner too much. I don't even backup the registries anymore because I've never had issues with it. Perhaps I've put too much faith in it's accuracy.

And before anyone asks, yes, of course I've tried simply rebooting. Didn't do anything to help.

Once again, thanks in advance.

also since it's a network doodad, you might be better off posting in the Networking subforum. You might ask the Mod to move this thread.

Thanks. Mods can move this if they want. I figured most posts to the general forum probably get moved once a mod decides on where it goes. I didn't really know where to shove this in at first. I wasn't sure if this went into networking or driver issues or what.

Btw, the page in that link never loads for me. Dunno why. I'm on Chrome and connecting from China.


Edit : Ah, it loaded now. Odd, the dependencies listed on that site are different from the ones I'm getting.

Edit 2 : Seems I'm missing this "COM+ Event System" perhaps?

Bump before it get close to time for me to hit the bed. Any ideas?

Move this to another category if it'll get me more response.

Edit : It appears that "COM+ Event System" exists on my computer, and attempting to run it opens a dialogue saying that it started and then stopped, suggesting that this may be natural for services that are not always needed.

I'm now going to Xpost this to "Networking and Sharing" due to little response here. Delete this one if deemed necessary.
